This photo won 6th place in “Landscapes” at the Howard County Fair.
This next photo won 4th place in the “Wildlife” category. I wasn’t sure it would win anything because I thought it was a little too creative, but the judges agreed with me, at least enough to have it place.
This last photo placed 4th in the “Flowers with no Insect” category.
Every year I comb through only last year’s photos trying to find 5 photos, since that is my limit, to enter. KI helps, but it is difficult. Feedback throughout the year from you also assists us in determining which we should enter. I don’t always choose my first choices, because of limitations I place on cropping that would cut out key elements of the photo when presenting in an 8×10 format.
Here is a photo that did not make the final submission because 1/3 would have been cut to format it correctly. An important lesson for me in the future.
Let me know what you think of my choices.
Thanks for supporting my work all year !
