Bird Behaviour
We are looking for images illustrating the various behaviours of birds.  Wading, nest building, flying, feeding and bathing are some examples. Not including birds sitting still.

Take a subject and force the viewer to look at it in a different way.  Depict a visual image that does not have an immediate association with an object.

Curves can be found in nature, on buildings, people and abstracts.  Show us where you found some curves, which should be the predominant feature of the image.

Reflections can be found in many places.  Maybe you can find something that is unusual.

Illustrate Action by shooting at a slower shutter speed  to blur or pan, or at a faster shutter speed to freeze the action.

An image that depicts the texture of an object, ie the feel, appearance or consistency of a surface or substance.  The main focus of the image should be the texture.

Group of Three
Compose an image comprised of some sort of trio-based grouping.

Wabi Sabi
Wabi Sabi is the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, or incomplete.  The image should convey this definition.
NOTE: This does not include imperfect photographic technique.

Tailem Town
Any image taken at the Tailem Town ACC club field trip in 2022.
