2016-2017 - Year end photo competition

March 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Good evening/morning/afternoon!

 This past Saturday was the very last competition of the 2016-2017 photo competition season at the Cleveland Photographic Society. The next season will start back up in July, and I'll be spending the next few months getting ready!  For the year end competition, you can only enter photos that had been entered during the regular competition season.  The photos didn't need to place in previous competitions in order to qualify; they just needed to be from that same season.  We could only enter 3 images per category, which turned out to be difficult for me to whittle down.  With that said, here are all the photos I entered into this competition.

In the end, I walked away with 5 ribbons for this season, and I achieved a goal I had set when I first started competing 5 years ago... which was to get 2 photos on the back wall in a single year!  I'm already looking forward to the upcoming competition season!  My next goal is to get a "Perfect score", which will likely elude me indefinitely.

 
Until next time, I wish you all the best!

 
Warm regards,
 Dan
