An overhead shot of a decorative cabbage claimed top honors at Tracy Camera Club’s August meeting, selected by judge Dean Taylor of Stockton Camera Club.

Mickey McGuire used a Sony 6300 mirrorless camera with a close-up attachment mounted on a tripod. After running the image through a filter, he called it “Nuclear Cabbage.”

“I exaggerated the colors by using a Topaz filter so I wanted viewers to know that it wasn't a straight shot,” McGuire said of the title.

The Tracy Camera Club meets the second Wednesday of each month, February through November, on the second floor of the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts, 715 Central Ave. A class begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the general meeting and competition from 7 to 9 p.m. For information: Geoff Faulkner,
