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....
Anyhow, the challenges were all fun and I learned a lot doing them!! Now get out and have some fun shooting!!
