We were delighted to welcome Libby Smith from Carluke to judge the 3rd and last image competition.
She gave an excellent critique on all the images, including good points and ways to improve all the images in the competition.
The results were as follows :-
1st The Wicked within the Innocent by Wullie Graham.
2nd Tumbling by Dominic Smith
3rd Head over Heels by Linda Greenhill.
The club played host to Strathaven Camera Club for their round of the GDPU Image Battle. The judge on the night was Hunter Kennedy of Carluke Camera Club. He gave each image a comprehensive critique including suggestions on how it could be improved. Often this could simply be by adjusting the contrast of the image to correct any over/underexposures. Strathaven were the eventual winners at the end of a very entertaining evening.
5 members of the camera club received awards in the South Lanarkshire Photographic Competition.
Brian Saberton received 3rd place in the Nature and Animals Section.
