Last week — wow has it been that long since I wrote a post??
Last week I told you that I am going to enter my first professional photography image competition and… insert drumroll here… my entries have been sent on their way!
I had a great time at the print review workshop, picked up a lot of tips, learned a little about how the images will be judged, saw lots of awesome work, and met some very talented people.
The images I took to the workshop actually held up a little better than I had thought they would. Oh if it had been the actual competition I would not have faired well but they did have some good things to say. I took the criticisms, tips, and ideas that were offered my way and did a little work on three of those images and then tossed another old favorite into the mix. Hopefully the little extra work has given these images a fighting chance!
My #1 entry is titled White Sun
When last you saw this images it was going by the alias White Daisy Macro and looked something like this…
Ok; I’m happy with those little changes.
#2 is titled Faux Bounty
When you last saw this image it was actually a different image titled Garden Gems…
same idea, new shoot, ethereal look — OK!
#3 is titled Do You Want To Play
Yep I tossed in an old favorite of Bella dog; after all what judge could ignore those eyes?
and entry #4 is now titled Lyin’ Down
it originally looked like this and was being called Afternoon Nap…
Oh, yes I now understand what they were saying about that foreground.
In addition to entering 4 images in the competition you have the added option of submitting 2 extra images just for scoring so I have tossed in a couple of oldies. Maybe the judges will like one of these!
Now I just have to wait until I attend the Spring Shutter Expo to find out what scores these images will receive. Fingers crossed!
