Killarney Camera Club recently held their first competition night of the 2023/2024 season. This was an Open Digital Competition where members could submit any image of their choosing. There were 22 superb entries.

.

Congratulations to Conor Healy who took first place in the Unrestricted category with his winning shot of ‘The Local’.
Conor’s image depicts the well-known Ross Castle at sunset. Conor said “I took this picture on the December, 13, 2021. We were at Ross Castle hoping to catch some nice sunset images. The clouds rolled in so we packed up our gear and just as we reached our car the sky lit up with amazing colours so we ran back and managed to get a couple of shots before the colours faded. I took this shot with my Nikon Z6 and 24-70mm lens.”
New member Elizabeth Browne came first in the Novice category and third in the Unrestricted category with her image of Dunmore Head.
Elizabeth also came third in the Unrestricted category with this same image.
Elizabeth said “This shot is of Dunmore Head, where the rocks lead your eyes through to the last of the evening light breaking through the heavy cloud, was taken at 8pm in early September. I used both a circular polarising filter and a neutral density filter to limit the light coming into my Nikon D7200.”

The club’s next competition night will take place on Thursday December 7 with a theme of Flora and Fauna.
New members are always welcome to join the club. If you would like further information please email secretary@killarneycameraclub.ie .
