the DIGI IMAGE round 3 competition

A high standard of entries tested the judge's critical faculties and surprised a lot in the audience at the well attended competition.  A very enjoyable evening.  Of particular note was the brilliant shot by Colin Maskell (below).

The subject, the composition, the control of the difficult lighting, the mastery of the colour palette and the pin sharp focus from front to back could not have been bettered.
