It was the first time that we have had Vincent Scouthern as a judge at SPC, we were impressed by both his photographic knowledge and his judging skills. Each of the fifty–three images submitted received a comprehensive and unbiased critique. Congratulations go to Kevin Gamwell for receiving maximum points for his image Judge in Chambers and to Gary Lewis and Roy Rodgers whose images Hopeful and When Will it End each gained nineteen points. Thanks to everyone who entered the competition and to Vin for sharing his expertise and time with us, no doubt he will be booked for future competitions!
