I have just come home from another good meeting of the Burnham U3A Photography group.
There were six of us there. We looked at some” Autumn Colour” shots. There are so many lovely colours around at the moment it is not difficult to find a picture. We mostly agreed on the ones we liked. There was some disagreement over a squirrel (whether to include all or part of his tail). I liked Ken’s picture of a young swan. Some thought the water was boringly calm. I thought there were enough ripples to make a decent picture, but I must agree that a few well situated reeds would have improved it. Alan showed a picture with ‘intrusive’ cars and an identical one where they had been digitally removed.
The main attraction today was the competition on our theme “Architecture”. This has proved to be a very good subject and has produced some cracking shots.
We each entered 2 photos and voted.
The grand winner this time was David Gipson with a lovely atmospheric city harbour scene.
Second was Brian Caulkett’s beautiful Italian colonnade.
There was no dispute over the winners. No demands for a recount.
So, on to the next topic of “Outrageous Photoshop Manipulation”. Wow! That gives us plenty of scope. I am already thinking of ideas.
I hope the winning pictures will be here on the website.
Our next meeting is on Monday, 26th November.
