Following the display and judging of competition images, Robyn Isaacson presented a series of images taken during a transit through the Panama Canal as part of a world cruise. Robyn's photos covered the journey from the Atlantic bridge though to the Pacific ocean a distance of 45 miles over ten hours. Fascinating images explaining the technical operation to keep the ship centered in the canal as in navigated six locks raising the ship 85 meters before descending back to sea level.

To finish the night Colin Pass presented a series of images and led an interesting discussion as to what qualifies as a “Landscape photograph”. Colin referred to a recent controversy in a major national competition that saw results withdrawn because images were not considered to be a “Landscape” as specified in the competition rules.
