BEST OF SHOW- Abraham de Villiers


Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 DSC Photo Contest!

From the Judges:

The judges of the DSC Photo Contest are always impressed with the wonderful images produced by the amateur photographers in the club. And this year was no exception. The contest brought 170 entries spanning 6 categories.

The winning photographs had a degree of perfection that made them stand out. It could be as simple as a certain degree of timing, focus, color balance or contrast, but it is there…and it is noticeable!

Thank you to all who entered this year.
