All 22 images which received either Honours or Highly Commended in the 2014 Spring Salon from judge Lance Lawson can be viewed online.  Click on GALLERY in the main menu, or directly here.  Thanks to Lance for his helpful judging last night, and for showing some of his recent commercial work.

It’s really pleasing to see how well new(ish) members in the Novice grade are doing.  Gill Mackersy picked up an Honours for her print “Imperfect Beauty”, and Brian Holden had two Highly Commended digital images, once of which (“Intruder”) is shown below.

Congratulations to both Gill Mackersy and Rhonda Billington who will be promoted to the Intermediate grade in 2015, after submitting portfolios.  (See the rules for the 2014 competition and promotion here.) The points have yet to be counted for promotion from Intermediate to Advanced. We’ll announce any changes at the end of year function.

Development Group Monday – “Lightroom Workflow”

The final Development Group for the year will be at 7:30 pm on 3 November. The topic will be “Lightroom Workflow”.  Bring along some images (preferably RAW) on a thumb drive, for Neil Gordon to demonstrate how they can be improved using the tools available in Lightroom.
