RPS enjoyed its annual pot luck holiday dinner, lots of good food for all. We also completed the Architecture themed competition which had been postponed from an earlier date. The judge was Nick Palmieri. He focused on a lot of fundamentals, be careful to crop out distracting elements, make sure the image appears straight. Don't include too much empty space such as plain sky. Look at the histogram, make sure to properly set the black & white points, avoid overexposure of the light areas. Remember the image is for a competition and the composition needs to be more interesting than just a snapshot.
