this coming Monday at my local photography club. My first one, that is, I just joined the club a few months ago. So I've been spending all day picking out the right pictures to enter. There are about 175 club members, and at least 1/2 will enter the competition. I know it's just small/local, but I really want to do well... wish me luck? :smile: Here were my final four choices, based on many people's comments who have seen them in my portfolio: Guitar Man: Faux Eiffel Tower: world weary: View attachment 100523 Zoom-zoom: View attachment 100524 So, those with experience, what do you think? Do I stand a snowball's chance of placing? :biggrin: :wink: UPDATE: So the competition went down Monday night. It was all very exciting... I sat right behind the scorers' table so I could see the scores as they were recorded, I must say, I thought the judges were all over the place... for example, one judge seemed to score anything nature/wildlife very low :frown: but some other stuff like a plain red barn in the middle of a boring field in bright sunshine he scored very high! (???) So, anyways, I was very pleased at how my 4 entries were received, so those of you with experience, see if you agree (by the way, there were 3 entrance levels and I think 5 categories, so these are only my pictures scores, I'm not sure if any will actually win a ribbon, I will find out July 2... oih, and there were 130 prints total in the competition.): Guitar Man scored lowest with an 81 (above average). Zoom-zoom came in 2nd with an 85 (excellent). AND my two best were World Weary with an 87 and Vegas Symmetry with a very respectable 88 (both on the high end of excellent).
