Good day folks,
What an incredible weekend for being outside... I wish this lasted longer than a few weeks a year!
That aside, last Friday was a People & Pictorial photo competition at the Cleveland Photographic Society. Although there were plenty of great entries, it turned out to be a fairly low scoring night for most everyone involved.
"Llama Master" - People Competition - Did Not Place
Taken during my visit to the Great Smoky Mountains last April, this shot took me two attempts to capture (on two different days). This spot was about 1 mile uphill from the parking area, and had some precarious rocky and root covered path to contend with. It didn't do well in the competition due to the fact that I didn't give enough breathing room around the subjects in the photo.
"Singer In a Band" - People Competition - Did Not Place
This show was taken during a co-worker's Rock-a-billy show at the Beachland Tavern earlier this year. Although it did poorly during the competition, I still really like this photo!
"Treetop walkway" - Pictorial Competition - 3rd Place
Also taken during my trip to The Great Smoky Mountains, this walkway can be found at the top of Clingmans Dome. It's about 1/2 mile from the parking area, but the path leading to it is at an absurd angle... I swear it was 45 degrees at some points! If you're willing to hike up the thing, the views span for miles around. You can see some incredible colors during sunset.
That's all I have for now!
Hope all of you are doing great!
