Our judge for the KCPS 2015 Winter Salon last night was Cliff Threadgold FPSNZ ARPS. His judging was very thoughtful, thorough and well explained, with many useful comments about what was good and what could be improved in the images.

After the judging, Cliff kindly showed some of his own photos – first about all the opportunities which present themselves (which is why it is always useful to have a camera with you), and second a presentation of people shots from Nepal.

We had around than 30 members present for a great evening.  The images which received either Highly Commended or Honours can be seen in the 2015 Winter Salon Gallery which is now online.

Special congratulations to Brian Holden and Chrissy Garlick for their Honours in the Novice Section, for the images below.
