Coming out of the “Shadows” – Competition March 28th

There was a great standard of images presented in our “Shadows”competition on Thursday night.  We were very appreciative of the constructive feedback from our judge, David Rowlands, who particularly encouraged creativity and “fine art” photography.  James Allan’s Escher impressed, Jenny Pedlar’s Dog Shadow was simple but striking and Mark Pedlar’s Boots was another with a creative twist.

Judy Sara found Wildebeest on the city streets and Don McLeod found apples tempting but out of reach.

Di Gage found intriguing multi-toned shadows in the cloisters, Heather Connolly’s simple piece of seaweed threw up an interesting twisted shadow and Kerry Malec’s minimalist pylon image demonstrated how shadows can actually enhance detail.

There were some great images in the Open category with Bev Langley’s Tempest, Jenny Pedlar’s Looking for a Wave and Steve Wallace’s Stack of Yellow making  an impression.

It wouldn’t be a BPC competition without a few animal images.  New member Trent Riddle captured a great giraffe portrait (coming soon), Helen Whitford caught a gull catching a crab and Judy Sara got up close and personal with a beautiful kite.

Come back soon to check out more images from the night and you can find all of the top images at Top Prints and Top Projected Digital Images.

This edition of Camera Clips is late.  I apologize to the authors who had their articles submitted quite early in the piece.  (Banner above by Helen Whitford)  There has been a lot happening in the club.  We have had the architecture competition, an invitation to hear Ken Duncan speak and we have hosted Stavros Pippos.  There has been a peer review night and an excursion.  Make sure you catch up on the events in  this months edition of camera clips.  We also have articles from Helen WhitfordRay Goulter and myself.  Here is the link: March 2019 Camera Clips.

We’re off and running with a static set subject – Architecture Feb 14th Competition

What a fantastic start to our competition year with 22 people entering images, including several new members!

We embraced the set subject of Architecture  with more than 60% of entries in this category and a total of 93 images for the night.

Our outing to the North Terrace medical and entertainment precinct yielded a number of images and it was great to see many different interpretations of the same buildings.

Of course there was some international flavour with James Allan capturing contemporary architecture in Seville beautifully and Judy Sara taking us to the amazing Singapore Garden.

Regular judge Peter Phillips gave useful feedback on each image, stressing the importance of good lighting to enhance composition and keeping us entertained with his bad jokes!  He provided many helpful hints on technique both during capture and in post processing.

There was a wide variety of styles ranging from Jenny Pedlar’s abstract NGV to David Hope’s more traditional Inspiring and from Don McLeod’s high-key Tokyo Roof Skeleton to Judy Sara’s low-key Car Park at Night.
