Things to keep in mind when choosing an image
Composition and exposure
Clarity - is your image sharp
Post editing techniques - is your image over exposed or over saturated
When you are printing your image - is the color management correct?
Topic - is it interesting - does it tell a story, is it creative or just a fun image.
Saturday May 21. Morning Light (and Full Moonlight) at Innisfree
Innisfree will open about one hour before sunrise and before the full Flower moon sets for photographers and other artists, birders, and anyone else who would like to experience the garden bathed in spectacular golden (or silvery) light. One doesn’t need to arrive when it’s still dark to enjoy this special treat. Bring a picnic and stay all day — the garden is open until 5pm. Seasonal highlight: Full Flower Moon & Japanese primroses.
4.30am. Regular weekend admission rates $8.00 pp Please sign up
