“On the Ridge” – Highly Commended, Intermediate Digital Image – ©Carol Molineux

Many thanks to Tony Whincup for his judging of our Autumn Salon last Monday.  Around thirty members heard his insightful and constructive comments on our images.  He stressed the importance of how images should communicate.

Carol’s image “On the Ridge” was accidentally left out of the judging on the night, but was later reviewed by Tony and given a Highly Commended rating. It was pleasing to see many entries from our newer members, and to have them well received by the judge

The gallery of the 19 images that received either honours or highly commended is now available. (See also the GALLERIES menu item at the top of the page, to access all the salon galleries for 2010, 2011 and 2012, as well as earlier images).

Tony made the very good point in his own presentation that, since photography is about communication, then one of the best ways of making sure your communication is heard is to exhibit. He related his own experiences of exhibiting his “Playgrounds” series at the Ballarat International Foto Bienale in 2011, and how this triggered a series of further opportunities for his photographic art to be more widely appreciated.

All in all it was a very interesting and rewarding meeting, thoroughly enjoyed by those who were able to be there.
