POTY review

This year’s POTY entries were based around the theme, I Spy with My Little Eye Something Beginning With… and then each member had to choose 3 of A, E, I, O or U as their subject. Members had to take one colour and one mono photo plus one other. The entries were judged by Suzanne, Sinead and Finbarr from Fermoy Camera Club and we are most grateful to them for their time, expertise and detailed and constructive feedback on every entry.
