Due to the likelihood of lack of numbers that will be attending our meeting on the 10th November, we have decided to cancel that evening, and hold it one week later on the 17th November. 

At our September meeting Denis went through the received mail that had not been forwarded to members.   Yours truly gave a presentation on taking and adjusting Smoke images, plus the taking of Bokeh images.

Next we went through the New Life images that had been received.   As Denis had missed putting the ‘Logo’ images on to his laptop, we only had a few from Alan to look at.    Therefore at our next meeting we (depending on numbers) should be able to peruse all Logo images and decide whether or not one is suitable to adopt as our Club’s official logo.

The Whangarei Interclub meeting was a success once more, with eight members attending from our Club.    The judging was harder this year, with no 10’s being given.   Alan was our top scorer with an 8.   Congratulations Alan.     Whangarei Club came first scoring 71 points.    We came second with 56.6 and Dargaville and Wellsford tied with 53.5.    It appears as though Whangarei will always come first being a much larger club and therefore a lot more images to choose from, but our ‘second’ was good to see.

The subject for our next meeting is Diptychs or Triptychs.    Also this month we need to have all of the ‘Self Assignment Project’ images in.     Just a reminder – the Self Assignment Project is a set of four images that all relate to each other in some way.

It would also be good to see more Logo images giving us more to choose from.

Our next meeting will be at Kaikohe on the 17th November 2011.
