A walkabout to capture images of bluebells.
Images that concentrate on the more abstract side of photography, with the key characteristic being the shapes and patterns of the image rather than the specific subject.
As always with projected competitions, you can enter 2 images. sized to 1400 x 1050 pixels.
Please email your images to Darren by Tuesday 16th May.

You may enter any image depicting photographs of non-human living creatures (fauna) or plants(flora). The photographs can include subjects that are wild, domesticated, captive, farmed or cultivated. The main subject of the photograph should be one or more plants and/or animals and the habitat is not restricted.
In terms of processing, adjustments to the image such as the exposure, contrast, colour balance, cropping and appropriate sharpening is allowed, so that the plants or animals are accurately represented as seen in the camera viewfinder. Minor removals of parts of the image which improve the accurate representation of the plants or animals are allowed. Additions to the original camera image are not allowed. In other words, by all means take out an offending twig or blade of grass etc but do not add extra animals, plants or replace the sky or other background.
As always with print images, members can enter 2 images into the colour competition and 2 entries into the monochrome competition.
Meet at the main car park at Longhsaw Estate, 7.00pm.
Don’t forget your camera!
A meeting to discuss and vote for changes to the clubs rules.
