Did Good in the last 2 Challenges!

Well, the Elimination Challenge is over...   Four winners met in 4 challenges, 3 days between to crown a first half Champ  Congrats to Rick from Nikonites for his well earned victory.   So, how did I do???   I finished second overall to Rick and I was pleased by that.  He is a very good photographer.

I also was pleased with my photo's in the last 2 challenges and the critiques by Corey.   The 3rd Challenge was "Summer".  

Here is my photo which placed 2nd and left me in a tie with Shannon overall, 8 points behind Rick.

The next (and last) Challenge was "Frozen in Time".  I decided to work with cars and tried freezing motion on the highway but was freezing the back ground also.  Hudson Speedway was having races Memorial Day so I went to the track and took some shots.   They seemed ok, I learned a bit but it was not what I wanted..   I took pictures along the road during my work breaks and seemed to get a couple.   One I really liked and one of the race pictures.   After post process, I flip flopped between them.  The Mustang was a "better photo" but I felt the race car better addressed the "frozen in time" and showed motion.  I went with the race car, scored 28.5 out of 30 and won the Challenge!!   I was excited to win one and that moved me into sole 2nd place.

Here are the 2 shots....
