    I'm entering two of my shots from this year into a juried show this coming week and I thought I'd post them here and keep you updated as to how I make out. You've seen them both previously, but I've processed them from scratch in RAW Magick this time and I think they came out pretty darned nice. These have both been printed at a full 13" x 19" on Cranes Museo 100% cotton paper and will be matted and framed. I've chosen 10 year old oak frames which I've re-finished which is really going against what you typically see in juried shows...but hey...maybe they'll stand out :)  After I get them back from my framer, I'll post some shots of the completed pieces...

    Here are the two images....Wish me luck!

    the owl should take the prize. Nice shot, good color and contrast and looks really sharp.

    Well, I think you have a decent chance for an old guy.... :lol:

    Seriously, these are both wonderful. Break a leg.

    Who are you calling old?

    Speaking of breaking a leg....I stepped into a muscrat hole last night while shooting those ospreys and fell flat on my *** in the marsh. I kept the camera up in the air thankfully but boy did I twist my knee :( 

    Good thing that it was only a half mile walk back to the car...and a good thing my wife was with me!

    They both should do very well...

    So, the Mrs carried the equipment back to the car for you? ;)  Hope your ankle feels better soon. Sometimes sprains take a long time to heal.

    Impressive shots Jim.
    The owl surely is a winner.

  10. I wish you the best, Jim and your approach with the special framing is a good Idea, but your images speak for themselves. Keep us posted
  11. Good luck! Both are wonderful shots.

    I'd vote for both of those excellent shots so good luck to you... :D 
  13. They're both exceptional for different reasons. I swear the owl is going to move any second! The bird on the water is erie and fascinating at the same time. Good luck!

    You're right on the money with the "I swear he's gonna move any second" comment. He was gone immediately after capturing this particular shot :) 
  15. Both are excellent images Jim, you should do well. Looking forward to the results.

    Excellent images, Jim! I like them both for different reasons and think they should both do very well.
