And I was right:
Third Place – Digital Color
Honorable Mention– Digital B&W
Ironically, the photo that did the best almost didn’t get entered. I don’t have a photo printer so I send my pictures to the local CVS to be printed. Their photo processor always prints too dark, so I lighten everything before I send it. No matter how much I lightened the photo of the allée, the colors came out dark and muddy. I didn’t care for them and would have left out the photo except it costs nothing to enter, so what the heck. I had nothing to lose.
Everyone loved that photo. One person has even offered to buy it.
But I still don’t like it.
