A few people have asked me what the rules are. Well, “there are no rules”, “the judges decision is final”, “I’ll be the judge of that, thank you”, “no correspondence will be entered into” , “you gotta be in it to win it”, “make ‘em laugh or make ‘em cry”, “anything goes”. Remember “rules are made to be broken”.
“Break a leg”.
Swap Meet & Table Sale
Tuesday 21 October 2014
Do you have photography books that you have read, lenses and equipment you have replaced, camera bags that are too big or too small, etc? If the answer is yes then bring them along to next Tuesday’s AGM and you can sell them or swap them with other members who want what you no longer need.
Members are solely responsible for any deals or financial arrangements entered into.
Sale & swap begins immediately after the Annual General Meeting.
If you would like to advertise you gear before hand you can post to the club’s Facebook page.
The November Sunday outing is to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Cranbourne and as it is Springtime there should be plenty of budding plants to grab the attention of those close up photographers. There is also quite a bit of modern art at the gardens as well as several pleasant walks. For the wildlife photographer there is usually an abundance of New Holland Honeyeaters and I have seen Bandicoots amongst the gardens but they are a challenge to see never mind to photograph. The gardens also boast several walks including a 4km nature trail and a bushland experience.
The plan is to meet at 9am at the Visitor Centre and at 12 noon for lunch at the Terrace near the Ornamental Lake. Please feel free to BYO if you prefer. Further details and information how to get there are below? Please see the note about letting Cookie know if you are intending to attend, on the notice below.
It is time for members to consider their entries for the end of year competition. Of images entered throughout the year, members can select from those to enter the end of year competition with three images in each of:
- Colour printed
- Monochrome printed
- Open EDI
The entry must have been entered into a 2014 monthly competition and in the same format. A print must have been previously entered as a print, and an EDI must have been previously entered as an EDI. An EDI cannot be printed and entered as a print, or vice versa.
Entries are due by our November competition night which is on Tuesday 28 October. Bring your prints along to be placed in the competition box, but do not resend your EDI files to the comptetion address, you only need to send through the filename of each entry.
Don’t forget about the President’s Trophy. The topic this year is “Clichés and Sayings”.
On the same night as the October competition, the 4-Club Interclub competition was held at Eastern Suburbs Camera Club’s new club rooms in Blackburn. Unfortunately due to miscommunication, Ringwood hadn’t entered and the night ended up being a 3-club event. WCC did as well as ever although we only retained one of the trophies instead of the two we had won earlier in the year. Although everyone as usual contributed to the overall scores, I would like to mention that Interclub rookie, Jason Roy Price scored 13 Points for his image Inside the Bean, well done Jason.
Here are the results starting with members special awards:
* Highly Commended (Colour Prints) – Slow Morning Cat Bay – Vicki Moritz
* Highly Commended (Mono Prints) – Iesha – Cuc Chong
* Highly Commended (Projected) – On the Way Home – Felix Shparberg
