Photo Critique:
Clive gave a critique on all the 32 photographs submitted with members interacting.

Using Photoshop, it was decided that it would be a good idea in the future to have a meeting/s on how to edit photographs with potential to show how they could be improved upon. (To bring laptops?).

Closing the meeting Clive thanked members for their help and attendance, reminding them regarding our October meeting’s speaker “Jean Brumby” (Should be good).

Members were asked to collect their photographs.
