A look back at the week that was, through the eyes of the Newcastle Herald's talented photographers. 

This week the Herald's photographers captured Melbourne Cup celebrations, snapped some incredibly talented young people and enjoyed the Catalina Festival at Rathmines. 

You'll find 'The week in Focus', a selection of their very best photos, on our website each week as we head into the weekend.
