Default Woo-Hoo--1st Place Ribbons

Got me-self 3 first place ribbons at the 2010 Boone County fair (Burlington, Kentucky) in the Catergories of Waterscapes, Pictorial and Wildlife. While the winning entries were taken with my K10D and DA 18-250 lens, the pictures below were taken with a Canon S90 (blasphemy...I know...but the S90 is a fantastic P&S...and I did not quite feel like lugging around my DSLR around the fair last night)

BTW, the winnings are rich...$3 for fist place...seriously!!

Congrats - all three are certainly worthy of the honor. I've always loved that middle one and must have missed the elephants, if you had posted them before (I don't remember it and I'm sure that if I had seen it before I would have remembered). Excellent shot!

Hi Jehan,

Congrats!!!!!

You've done some great work, and deserve the recognition. I think that posting pics of your Pentax shots with another brand camera can be forgiven here. . . just barely. . .

Don't spend your winnings in one place!

Scott

Way to go Jehan!
That's the second or third time you've won an honor on #2.
If you need any help investing all that money, let me know.

Jehan, Didn't I tell you you could win some first placers! These are great. I don't remember having seen #1 or #3 before. All three are top notch.

I know what you mean about the winnings. It doesn't even cover the cost of printing and matting. But, it sure is fun.

This makes the second year in a row I haven't entered the local fairs. Last year due to taking care of my mom and now me. Maybe next year.

Anyway, congrats! I knew you could do it.

Patty
