Essendon Camera Club conducted their monthly photography competition for May on Monday May 14, 2012 at the club, and as a member, it was great fun to have two digital images entered in the Open Category and two entered in the Set Subject Category of "Weather".
Jean-Phillipe Weibel was most kind in visiting our club, and as guest judge on the night, his insightful commentary and advice was welcomed and appreciated by club members.
In the Open Category, Jean-Phillipe awarded me 2nd Place for Kite Surfing at Merimbula, and 4th Place for Dog Rocks.
In the Set Subject Category "Weather", Jean-Phillipe awarded me 2nd Place for Coburg Lake Reserve.
Having joined the Essendon Camera Club in March this year, this was my first opportunity to enter our club's competitions and I appreciate the opportunity. Club committee members generously give their time voluntarily to organise our competitions, and they really are to be congratulated for their fine efforts.
