  1. We (my family) entered some photos in our local fair. I took first place in the Sports category and second place in the Still Life category. My daughter, who is twelve and just started with my wife's old camera this year, took third in the People, One Person category. Here are the pix:

    I see a big expensive camera on your daughters shopping list, courtesy of your credit card :wink:
  4. Thanks guys. I am especially happy because this year I printed and matted them myself. I enjoyed being in total control of my "vision".

  11. Fun to win isn't it Greg. Way to go.
  12. I really appreciate everyone's kind remarks. It wasn't just about winning. It was about hundreds (thousands?) of people looking at my photos. Sometimes I just like to show off!

    Congrats, Greg and daughter! Great shots!

    BTW - where is that soccer field in the first shot? Looks like cemetary headstones in the background - is that what I'm seeing?
  16. Again, thanks for the comments.

    Drueter, yes those are headstones. The soccer field is in the Terre Hill, PA community park. It is actually a "mobile" soccer field. It was set up just for a clinic lasting a few days. The clinic was sponsored by the local church. I assume that is their cemetery.
