Print Round 1 1st December 2016
Tonight Gavin Forrest from Carluke Camera Club came to judge Print Round 1. Between the two divisions there were 119 image to view and award marks for so without delay Gavin got underway. As he went along he offered feedback in a light hearted fashion which was well received. These comments reflected cropping, using layers for contrast details there were also tips on sharpening images as he went along. Many thanks Gavin and thank you to all members who contributed images to the round.
