We had more than forty people last Monday night to see the Ohakune Field Trip AV, and then hear from Bruce Girdwood, the Autumn Salon judge.

Bruce has been judging for KCPS for many years, and it’s always a privilege to hear his comments on our images, as well as to see where he is going himself on his photographic journey. His judging was thorough, constructive and helpful. Fifteen images received either Honours or Highly Commended. It was especially pleasing that two of our newer members received their first honours: Chris McGinty (in his first salon entry) for his digital image “Bloom”, and Gill Mackersy for her print “Wheels for Hire”.

All fifteen Highly Commended and Honours images can be seen in the 2013 Autumn Salon Gallery which is now online.
