    Photo Contests

    I've entered several of my recent photographs into a student contest. The contest also has a "Peoples Choice Award." I would encourage anyone interested in checking out the photos and voting. If there are others currently enrolled in photography school (Don), I would encourage you to enter. The cost ... FREE.

    Here's a link to some of my entries.

    I'll post re-sized versions of the photos in this thread tomorrow.

    Okay, I decided to post them tonight and save people from necessarily having to follow the links.

    Yep, student's only on this one. Nothing quite like being a 42 year old student ... that is one that has to work full-time 60-80 hrs/week and fit the classes in on weekends or evenings.

    I like they all. I think the last one needs some room on either side of the rocks. (don't know which side without seeing the whole image)

    Thanks, Frank. There was no crop on the last one. But, here's the alternate profile version I was toying with submitting.

    I like it better. The rocks lead your eye to the mountains.

    I followed the link and voted for you. I do think you have some competition though.
