The Milton Ulladulla Camera Club (MUDCC) has returned to running its monthly competitions online, until current COVID-19 restrictions allow it to once again also offer print competitions.
The August competition theme was 'monochrome and simply put, a monochrome photograph is an image produced in one colour and its tonal variations using differing amounts of light.
Because it involves removing colour from the image, monotone photography tends to be used for artistic and aesthetic purposes.
It can be particularly effective for subjects that have strong structural elements or where you want to remove distractions that colour photography can produce.
Well-known Shoalhaven photographer Colin Talbot was the judge for the competition and remarked that he felt that the standard was outstanding across all grades and categories.
The winner of the Theme of the month award was Angela Kinnane with "Jetty".
Angela used converging lines to form a perfectly symmetrical image.
Colin Talbot was a huge fan of the work, describing it as an image with zero faults and as "close to perfect".
The winner of the Open competition was Trish Curotta, with her exceptional depiction of an egret about to enter the water, titled "The Decisive Moment".
Colin Talbot described it as a high quality nature shot, with the action perfectly frozen.
