Pic­tures pop as lo­cal club wins com­pe­ti­tion

South Burnett Times - - NEWS - Ni­cholas Ader­mann ni­cholas.ader­mann@south­bur­nett­times.com.au

SOME of the South Bur­nett’s finest pho­tog­ra­phers were on show on Sun­day with the Nanango District Cam­era Club host­ing its Dig­i­tal Pro­jected Im­ages com­pe­ti­tion.

The lo­cal club took out the over­all prize with 247 points, beat­ing run­ner-up Black­butt by a sin­gle point.

Am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher So­nia Vine cap­tured the photo with the high­est rated score, and said pho­tog­ra­phy meant dif­fer­ent things for dif­fer­ent peo­ple.

“The shot that won was taken early morn­ing, and I re­ally love those na­ture shots be­cause it’s a nice quiet and peace­ful time for me,” she said.

Judge Peter O’Brien has been tak­ing pho­tos for more than 25 years, and has de­vel­oped a keen eye for a good pic­ture.

“When I am look­ing at pho­tos, I am re­ally look­ing for that ‘wow’ fac­tor, which jumps out at you as soon as you look at it, es­pe­cially with its use of colour.”

HELP­FUL HINTS: Com­pe­ti­tion judge Peter O’Brien passes on his knowl­edge to lo­cal am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher So­nia Vine.
