The Results Are In!

Results to what, you ask?  Well, the MetroParks held a nature photography competition.  Hubs and I entered a total of 8 photos.  This weekend they were displayed at our park, and the exhibit will travel to other parks in the area for the next 3 weeks.

We were there almost when the display opened at 11 am Saturday morning!  Alas, none of our photos won, but they were there among many others, and they fit in well.  There really weren't any "bad" photos, and we felt ours held their own.

One thing we did notice was that all of the winners had submitted larger prints - usually 8x10, matted with a larger mat.  I submitted all 5x7, matted with 8x10 mats.  Lesson learned for the next time we try this.  Indeed in 2004 when I won 2nd place with one of mine, it was a larger print also.  HHmmmm.... interesting.

Here are the photos we submitted.  You may have seen some of them here before, but for the sake of keeping the contest entries together, I'm putting them all here:

It is still possible that one of ours could win the People's Choice Award, but given the large number of great entries, I think the odds of that are slim.  It was great fun to see all the entries, and we've already starting discussing what we might work on for the next contest.  

Hope you enjoyed our photos!

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back again soon, and don't forget to feed the fish!
