The following- are the results of the competitions held in connection with the Dtmedin Photographic Society's annual exhibition recently hold in conjunction with tho Otago Art Society's exhibition, j together with the comments of the judge ! (Mr R. Hawcridge) on the leading pictures in each class. Thirty-eight pictures were entered for the various classes : —Landscape.— ! No. 12 (P. Leek) 1 No. 6 (S. H. llawson) and No. 5 ((!. F. Goodridge), equal 2 No. 12 ('Tho Harvest Field'), by r. Beck, is a very line atmospheric tendering of a well-chosen and arranged subject, sky, distance, middle distance, unci fureprourid being in complete accord. No. 6 (' A Landscape-'), by S. H. Rawson, is a delightful little decorative composition, rendered in charmingly delicate tones, and appeals strongly by*its beautiful lino and arrangement. No. 3 (' Dunedin by Night'), by C. F. Goodridge, is an attempt to grapple with a very difficult problem, and has many picturesque qualities. ! —Marine. — No. 9 (A. Dickison) 1 No. 8 (S. Earland) 2 No. 9 ('Morning Mists'), by A. Dickison, the most successful marine exhibit, is a very artistic conception, or possibly one 6hould say meet artistic realisation, of the possibilities of a fog effect. At any rate, the steam tugs at the wharf, enshrouded in ' smoko and fog, in Mr Dickson's hands have yielded a convincing and poetic result. In No. 8 ('Summer'), by Mr Earland, a good plain air effect i.s obtained. ■—Portrait.— No. 23 (R. A. Edwards) 1 No. 24 (A. Dickson) 2 No. 32 (Miss F. Walmsley) 3 No. 23 (' A Study'), by Mr Edwards, ia a magnificent example of tone, technique, modelling, and artistic quality, obtained without any sacrifice- of portrait value. In No. 24 Tin Pensive Mood') Mr Dickison shows a wonderfully good appreciation of the possibilities of hie subject. No. 32 ('Youth"), by Miss Walmsley, is a very happily posed study of a young girl, insouciante, and treated with a nice absence of formality, in good accord with the subject. —General Class,— No. 18 (S. Earland) .„ 1 No. 22 (A. Dickison)... ._ 2 No. 18 ('Autumn'), by S. Earland, is excellent, and reveals more qualities of velvety tone and atmosphere every timo it is seen. *-Besfc Picture in Exhibition.— No. 19 iMx A. DickkorA. Thia picture ('The Sunlit Portico') affords further proof of Air Dickison'a grasp oi the artistic- unities. It ia the most impressive gallery picture I ever remember to have seen in the society's exhibitions.
