Our judge for the KCPS 2014 Autumn Salon last Monday was our very own President, Ian Linning.

We had an excellent attendance of around 40 members to hear Ian’s thorough and constructive appraisals of all the images. Thanks to Ian for doing this.

The 29 available Highly Commended and Honours images can be seen in the 2014 Autumn Salon Gallery which is now online.  It was good to see Rhonda Billington receive her first Highly Commended for her Novice Print “Castle Point Lighthouse” – not taken on our recent trip!

After the judging, we watched a 5 minute audiovisual of images from some of those who had been on the very successful field trip to Castlepoint the previous weekend, and viewed some further submissions for the Waikanae Estuary exhibition.  The deadline for this has now been extended to next Monday 9 June – see details here on the website . And don’t forget you have until Saturday (tomorrow) night 31 May to submit images for our club set for the Trenna Packer – details on this blog post.

Enjoy your holiday weekend, but don’t forget that Development Group will meet as usual for the first Monday of the month on 2 June. The advertised topic is “Low Light and Fill in Flash Photography”.
