Crieff Camera Club
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.
