October - Changing colours

October Theme -Changing Colours Greetings fellow photographers! Thanks again for your participation in our September theme - Industrial. I received an amazing number of submissions! Now we’re on to the October theme - Changing Colours.    Going forward please continue sending a maximum of 3 images, but I would appreciate if you would rank your photos 1,2,3. With our new approach of having our guest judges talk about each images there may be times when we have too many images to show all 3 images and we’ll only show 2 from each member. Please keep up your enthusiasm. Monthly themes are a huge part of our club activities and I really believe it’s an opportunity for all of us to improve our photography skills. Thanks again for your support. I will be in touch later on in the month with the deadline for image submission, etc. In the meantime get out there and take some changing colours photos. Regards, Scott Stone 604-531-3911
