Annual Photo Critique Night - 11/11/2019 at 7pm
JudgesBarbara Statas, Bidyottam Mittra and Ed Palaszynski
This is GCC 3rd annual 'Photo Critique' session. This session will be in lieu of our speaker meeting. The panel will include three GCC longtime members and outstanding photographers, Ed
Palaszynski, Bidyottam Mittra, and Barbara Statas. 
The Photo Critique is an opportunity for GCC members to get quality feedback on their
photographs. The motivation for this critique is not to qualify or disqualify images, but to offer suggestions on how to improve the photos. There are no awards. This is an educational endeavor and an opportunity to receive advice from some of the best photographers in the club. Click critique for more details.
