Wild about Wildlife
In what has been a rare occurrence in recent years, entries in the Set Subject of Wildlife far outweighed the Open section in the October competition and a larger than usual number of individuals entered images.
It seems we are wild about Wildlife! Perhaps because several of our members have had wonderful safaris overseas, but there was no shortage of Aussie Wildlife in the mix.
James provided a cuteness overload with Purse Slipper Nest.
Judy wowed us all with her stunning Jaguar image.
Steve’s Shy Albatross was not so shy.
Howard’s Old Master made an impression.
and Helen’s MY Grevillea raised a smile.
Paula McManus of Port Adelaide CC made her debut as a judge and did a great job! As a first timer she was cautious and rather generous with scores but gave constructive criticism and positive feedback aimed at helping people see what they did right and what could be improved. It seems we helped her feel relaxed enough to share a joke and enjoy the experience. 🙂 Thanks Paula!
There were fewer Open entries but some stunning images – notably Anthony Kernich’s Singapore Blue Hour.
And Jenny’s Blue Horses provided an artistic touch.
