Cri­eff Cam­era Club

Strathearn Herald - - CLUB NEWS -

Cri­eff Cam­era Club wel­comed back David Hay from Pit­lochry to judge the club’s Ur­ban View com­pe­ti­tion. David is a greatly re­spected mem­ber of Perth Pho­to­graphic Society, and his web­site is well worth a visit. The com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted a good en­try, par­tic­u­larly in the dig­i­tal im­age sec­tion. David gave a very thought­ful and help­ful cri­tique of each photo and pre­sented his re­sults with witty ad­vice. In the mono­chrome print sec­tion, Jane Mor­ri­son took the hon­ours with an at­mo­spheric shot of the Sil­very Tay, and a well-printed view of the Kelpie. Bill Clark came third with a view of the High Street, West We­myss. In the colour print sec­tion, Jane again came first with a bril­liant view of the new V&A mu­seum in Dundee. Bill’s views ‘Up the Brae’ in Dean Vil­lage and Hert­ford Bridge in Ox­ford were placed sec­ond and third, re­spec­tively. Robert Har­ri­son swept the board in the dig­i­tal sec­tion with three won­der­ful pic­tures of Syd­ney: ‘Down and Out’ and ‘Bird Man’, both close ups of street life and, in first place, a stun­ning panorama of Syd­ney from a high view­point, giv­ing a crys­tal­clear view of the city cen­tre and har­bour. Af­ter Christ­mas din­ner at Auchin­gar­rich on De­cem­ber 21, meet­ings re­sume on Jan­uary 18 with a work­shop ses­sion to help up­grade mem­bers’ skills with cam­eras and on the com­puter.
