Each month the Focal Point members have an in-house photo competition based on a specific theme. At the monthly meeting, the photographs are judged by a panel of three. The panel changes monthly.
The topic for January was "Book or Movie Title", which led to some very interesting photos. The winner was Sam Moffa's "The Hunger Games."
The theme for February was "Up Close". The winning photograph "Sliced Banana" was taken by MaryJo Perrone.
March's topic was "Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder". John Loreau won with his photo "The Web".
In April we took photos depicting "Light". "Hollywood Glamour Light" taken by Susan Gietka was the winning photo.
