I'm a Winner!
Tonight at camera club I received my first competition point. I entered this father/daughter portrait in tonight's open color print competition and received an honorable mention. The judge tonight obviously had great taste because he liked my picture, but he was really boring and went over on time. His picture philosophy was that all pictures were either a window or a mirror. He said this picture was a combination of the two. I have no idea what any of that means.
What I do know is that I achieved my goal of getting a single competition point. Assuming we leave St. Louis this year, it will almost certainly be my only competition point. The St. Louis Camera Club makes me sad to leave St. Louis, and even more sad that I didn't know about it the first three years we lived here.
Competition points aren't worth anything except the glory, but once you earn enough of them you compete in a more experienced division.
