'Decay' competition - 18 May 2021

At our 'Decay' competition on 18 May judge Paul Radden started by informing us that after viewing the images he was completely depressed and disgusted by some of them, but thankfully, this was not due to the quality of the photography but by the subject matter!

Paul did an excellent job of scoring the 57 entries and passing on helpful comments and advice. The winning image was 'Goldfinch - a Study in Decay' by Sue Garrod (see below), with 'Buy One, Get One Free' by Barrie Henderson in second place and 'End of the Line' by Trevor Boyd in third. A gallery of all images can be viewed here.

Our thanks to Paul for his excellent judging and constructive comments. Posted 20/05/2021
