Congratulations to Pat Ching for her print-of-the-month winning photo!
Pat Ching - Flamingo Fanny
Pat says:
The photo, titled "Flamingo Fanny" taken at the Sacramento Zoo, was entered into the subject category "Up Close". I did "break" a common rule (if there is such a thing) in photography, avoid taking photos at mid-day with the sun overhead, but that worked in my favor in this case I think as the background was in very dark shadow.
We enjoyed this photo at the competition meeting as well as many other stunning photos submitted this month. Keep up the great work, everyone!
This month Dean Taylor from the Stockton Camera Club was our guest judge. Dean used a different style of judging than we are used to in Tracy. He sat in the audience with the rest of us, facing the photograph, and pointed out areas of interest with a laser pointer. If future guest judges are open to it, we will try this method again.
