1. The f-64 Challenge for the month of October is:
“Landscape/Seascape @ f-11” This is an aperture priority Challenge.
The picture submitted must have been taken with your camera aperture set
at f-11. The image topic is broad and general and one that lends itself to
this aperture setting for two reasons. One, most camera lenses take their
sharpest images in the f-8/f-11 range and two; f-11 will provide you with a
large depth-of-field range suitable for both landscapes and seascapes.
Keep in mind however that “where” you focus in the scene may impact close
foreground elements and/or the distant horizon. It is up to you to pick
that sweet spot and frame your shot to exploit the full range of your
depth-of-field. Good luck with your Challenge. Please remember that
the picture submitted for this Challenge must be taken DURING the month of
October. Double check your date/time settings on your camera…make sure
that they are set correctly.
2. VOTING is now open for the
September Challenge images. There are 37 excellent submissions under the
“Abstract” Challenge. Look them over carefully and select your 1, 2, and 3
choice images and submit your ballots. Try to apply the best elements of
judging an image based on the professional criteria used in national and
international competitions. (Impact, Technical Excellence, Creativity,
etc..) Voting will remain open until midnight Saturday October the

attached to this special announcement. Give a big thank you to Tom Vranas
for submitting this October Virginia Events notice to our membership. It
has been suggested that we continue issuing a monthly notice and add it to our
