Digital Challenge Cup

 

2019 -2020 Digital Challenge Cup

The Digital Challenge Cup is a competition for CD Group members.  The “Challenge” is to submit a “final” image and the “original” camera image.  This is all about demonstrating your editing skills.  Could be subtle or very creative.  The judge assesses the final image, taking into account the originator’s processing skills.

This year the images were judged by Sue and Doug Hamilton.  So, a big thank you to both of them for the time and effort put into the judging.

Scores from this competition go towards the end of season awards.

There were 20 entries and those scoring 17 points and above are shown below.
