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 international architecture with James Allan capturing Gaudi’s work 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.

Come back shortly to see an update including print images.  For more images from the night visit our Top Prints and Top Projected Digital Images pages.
