Default Bragging Rights!

Well, after 4 years of entering pictures in the Boone County, KY Fair, I finally got a couple of ribbons. While not first place, I placed 2nd and 3rd for the two images that I've posted on this forum and also were featured on Steve's POD. I promised my wife that if I did not at least get an "honorable mention" this year, I'd quit exhibiting at the fair. I still do not understand the judging criteria: some of the pictures that took first place had poor composition, subject interest, and lighting. It seems that waterfalls were in the judges favor this year since the blue ribbon was awarded to another image of a waterfall. Guess I'll be preparing for next year now!

Here are the entries:

Congrats! Well deserved - who can resist your Vietnam Wall picture - it's awesome. I don't try to figure out judges for photography - it's always obvious to me that I don't have good sense to tell why a judge would choose one outstanding picture over another outstanding picture.

Cameanee, Daniel, Lou, GW, Roy,Kjell and Harriet, Thanks for celebrating my 2 minutes of fame with me! I appreciate this forum in making me a better photographer which is why I feel that I need to share the kudos with the group! I'd share the winnings, but a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place won $3, $2, & $1 respectively which made my winning a whole $3. As I said in the title, Bragging Rights only!

There's no accounting for people's taste. We know that we recognize talent when we see it - witness last month's near unanimous choice! At least the judges came close this year - we should congratulate them on getting it right this time!
