Warragul National

A few members ventured out to Warragul on Sunday to see the Warragul CC National Exhibition, here’s Pete’s account of it.

A few members ventured on over to Warragul to have a look at the Warragul Camera Club’s 37th National Photographic Competition last Sunday and enjoyed viewing the acceptances on display.

Congratulations to Tuck and Leif who both had acceptances being exhibited.
The mystery that seems to surround these “Nationals” was explained to those who were there and the next National in Pakenham should see some more members of Waverley entering into competition. For a gold coin donation you can’t get much more of a photography exhibition, the standard was generally excellent and there were plenty of images to look at.

After the exhibition Dave, Philip, Beth, Leif and I hit the road (in glorious sunshine) and headed for Noojee. By the time we got there it had been raining for 15 minutes (Noojee is only 30 mins from Warragul) but when we stopped at the trestle bridge the sun was almost peeking out again. A few shots of the bridge and into town to the Latrobe river and then on home. The light was poor so it was an opportunity to concentrate on composition and see how much could be rescued in Photoshop. On the way home I stopped to do a panorama using Peter Myers pistol grip tripod – an interesting experience! I stitched eight pics together in this shot. Once again a most enjoyable afternoon.
