POSTED ON BEHALF OF WREN:
For those who have not been with us from the beginning of these contest-we started them to help improve our photo taking skills. I am seeing more improvement all the time.
There are a lot of great pictures entered in this contest. It was very hard to limit the number I chose. As usual, I tried to choose the pictures that where the best examples of good photography, this meant that I had to cut some good pictures, that just had tiny flaws.
You all are improving, so I also have to be a little tougher on the judging.
for awarding the first place ribbon for my holiday photo. this was a new camera that i used and while it has differnt shooting modes it also takes time to change from one to another. i i shot this without a flash because i thought there was enough light in the room and i was afraid Ava would move away from Santa before i coould switch to flash mode.
for my honorable mention photo inside harrah's casino i just took a quick shot because i didn't want any people in the photo and since it was right inside the doorway to the casino there always were people walking in and out.
also, congratulations to all the other winners and honorable mentions.
Beautiful Souls like Frank leave lasting memories in the hearts of those he touched .
Frank, the next contest is about Easter. There are 2 categories, Secular and religious. The winners will be made into extra puzzles over easter weekend. It will be a bit different because we will use the standard contest set-up and everyone will be able vote.
WOW! You all are really getting GREAT at this!! Go back and look at the first contest's entries and you'll see how you are all developing that "eye" that makes for better photos. These pics would make wonderful wall-hanging!
