Toot my own horn, that is!
I entered a local contest being held by an art gallery for the heck of it, without any expectations of being recognized or even becoming a finalist. So, needless to say, receiving the notification is a bit of a surprise to me! :biggrin:

Hello Francis,
Congratulations!
You have been selected as a participant for this years Facing East Exhibit and are a finalist for the Best of Show designation.

If we may, our jury would like the opportunity to meet one more time, on Monday, to select the final images to be shown in the exhibit. At the end of the day on Monday we will notify you via email of the images we'd like you to print to be hung in the show.

Though the application states that final images are due at the gallery on Tuesday, we really will not hang the show until Friday evening/Saturday morning. As long as you get your pieces to us on or by Friday, we will have plenty of time to install them.

Thank you for taking the time to, and having interest in, participating in our 2008 Facing East exhibit. We look forwarding to seeing you and your friends at the opening reception next Saturday.
Again, congratulations!
Best,
--Harold McMillan

Thanks, Jerry :biggrin:. I will post images once they let me know which of my 10 photos are to be showcased. Oh and on your D300, you can use the multi-selector to change the focus location and you can see it while looking thru the viewfinder or you can, as already suggested, press the info button and make your selection using the big LCD screen.
