Killarney Camera Club's latest photo competition was themed 'Colourful Town' and yet again amateur photographers had lots of images to share.

There was a variety of entries with images from near and far including Dingle and Cork.

Julia Deady won the Unrestricted category and Noel O’Neill was named winner of the Novice category. The top three winners in each category were:

Unrestricted category:

1st Place: Julia Deady, Image 6, Cobh, 145 points
Joint 2nd Place: Thomas Bradley, Image 20, Street Colour, 141 points
Joint 2nd Place: Noel O’Neill, Image 10, Dingle Bay and Marina Jan 2021-0927, 141 points
3rd Place: Eoin Foley, Image 11, Colourful Cork, 139 points

2nd Place: Eoin Foley, Image 11, Colourful Cork, 139 points
3rd Place: Tanja Fischer, Image 5, Aarhus, 136 points

“I had to scale a five foot wall to get a good position," Julia, who gave an insight into her winning image, said.
"The top of the wall was quite narrow so I hastily took this photo. I realised later that I could have achieved the same shot from The Commodore Hotel. I learnt the hard way!”

Her image was taken with a Canon 80D, 24-105 L series f/4 lens with an aperture of F8 and shutter speed of 1/100, while the ISO was set at 200 and the image was taken at 6pm in the evening.

The club continues to meet fortnightly on Thursday night via Zoom and new members are always welcome. Anyone interested in joining can email secretary@killarneycameraclub.ie.
