July's topic was Glass and there were some interesting takes on this subject.
Les chose to comment on Anne's Glass Panes. He liked the simplicity and the colours. He thought the composition worked well because of the angle of the building and the fact the shot obeyed the rule of thirds.
Anne herself liked her tumbler because of the colours.
Irene chose Athol's black and white picture here because of the sharp angle in a clean, simple shot with the silhouettes adding a sense of drama.
Athol liked the colours in this picture, with a plain and simple background.
This through-the-glass picture from Bob was generally admired.
Bob and Frances both selected this one however. Frances commented on the leading lines. An Interesting picture that made you think. She thought it a clever composition. Bob commented that it had taken a lot of effort to produce.
Both Brian and Bob chose the next picture, but Brian had provided this introductory shot to explain how his next picture had been taken. The subject is the Inchkeith Lighthouse lens in the National Museum.
Brian had experimented with taking different shots from different positions, but was pleased with this dark shot, featuring both natural and artificial light. Bob thought it a well constructed picture that was definitely on topic.
This was actually Brian's second choice from Fiona's pictures.
Both Brian and Fiona herself had chosen this picture. Fiona was pleased with the leading lines drawing the eye into the picture and liked the placing of the bicycles. Brian thought the bikes added interest and he liked the splash of green.
