It was still a great experience. And I was the only one who sold a piece that night! :biggrin:

Here's a snapshot from a canon PnS :tongue:

Sorry about not getting best in show, however getting your image into the show in the first place is certainly a big acheivement.

Nice photo from the exhibition, even if it was taken with a Canon :)

I actually took the first set of images during the day but there were cars in the background, so I decided to return later that evening when the cars were gone. The contest imposed a time frame in which to shoot the images, so I did what I could in the time permitted. I think it still came out alright :smile:

Congrats Francis... at least you sold something.

I agree with Gretchen! You made money! What an accomplishment!

Thanks, Y'all. I'm more excited about selling a piece than not winning BIS. :biggrin:
