Salinas Field Trip - 2017
Returns: March 15, 2017
Judged by: David Gubernick

Each year, the Club conducts a competitive field trip, usually to a unique local venue, in which they compete in seven image subjects. This year the Club chose to photograph sites throughout the City of Salinas on January 22, 2017. This year's subjects were designed to showcase the varied landscapes and features of this city through individual interpretation of an eclectic list of subjects including: Architectural Details, Salinas High School, Spirit of Agriculture, the Railroad Station, Contrast of Old and New, People, Street Art and Furniture, and Photographer's Choice. The participants also enjoyed a lunch together at the Monterey Coast Brewing Company during the mid-day light. The day was overcast and drizzly for much of the day but the members created some striking images.

The Club has established a three-division competition. Group A - advanced photographers, Group AA - intermediate photographers, and Group AAA - developing photographers and new members. Presented below are the overall winning shots for each group.
