These images have been recognized as the better ones by judges during competitions in either of the three photos clubs I am a member in.  Each image was within a given theme. I do not consider these  images to be super strong or superior, its just that on a given night a judge gave them a higher ranking.  The Photo Clubs are in Laval, Québec;  Washington, DC; and St-Jérome, Québec.  The images are ranked by date.
