Wexford Camera Club success at competition

David Tucker


Wexford Camera Club took second place in the Southern Association of Camera Clubs' recent inter-club competition.

Each camera club in the association enters two panels of 10 images - one colour and one black and white. Out of all the photographs entered, two club members came away with top awards.

Barry Walsh's black and white image 'Empire' did extremely well. He won not only 'best black and white' image but 'best overall' image in the whole competition. A great result for Barry and for a black and white print. Barry took this photograph of the Empire State Building from the viewing tower of the Rockefeller Building, New York.

Barry said, 'I love modern structures and clean lines. I wanted to create a low key image that would isolate and highlight the simple beauty of the building. I concentrated on that in spite of the crowd of other tourists all around me'.

The second club win of the day was Vladimir Morozov's colour print 'Poppy'. It was awarded 'best colour print' in the competition.
