23rd June: Online Challenge #3 – Faceless Self Portraits Competition judged by Nigel Plant ARPS AFIAP DPAGB

Another bumper entry to our third online challenge was judged by Nigel Plant,  Hebden Bridge Camera Club in West Yorkshire; and as this was a ‘faceless’ self portrait competition he really didn’t know any of the ‘faces’!

Many congratulations go to Judith Gimber whose “I Spy” was awarded first place and her “Maranta Masquerade” second;  and to Judy Buckley-Sharp whose “Connected” was third;  Nigel awarded three images a highly commended and these went to Alice Kass for “Mesh On”, George Demetriou’s “Nice to See You Both”  and Ian Robert’s “Time for Reflection”.  Congratulations all.

Nigel did a good job critiquing each ‘person’ – quite a sensitive situation to be in!  He gave well measured comments and tips which apply across all genres.

It was an enjoyable and informative evening and thanks to everyone who entered, those who supported the competition by ‘coming along’ to view (and guess who’s who’!) and of course special thanks to Nigel.

All the images can be viewed on our Facebook page.

Watch this space for the next challenge…………

As we ease out of lock down,  stay safe, stay well.
