Image Improvement Suggestions

Dusty created a video of the Judges' suggestions of improvements that could be made on the images presented for the Spring Print Competition on May 13th. Whether an image was judged high or low, the judges spent time with each image. This video could be useful to review before submitting an image for future competition.
