Okay...here I go, putting on a brave face to enter at NHPPA in April. I went through a lot of pictures yesterday and pulled out a few I like. I have not worked any up for competition, but would like to know if I even should.:eek:
So I will be putting a few up for opinions this week. I appreciate your honest comments and critiques. We all start somewhere right...LOL. Is it normal to have a big knot in your stomach the first time? I am glad your all nice people! LOL.
Seriously don't worry about hurting my feelings, I can take it! Oh and I suck at titles!

Stacey,

I hope you don't mind. I like this image. I removed some of the things that was jumping out at me. This photograph tells me the story of a little girl that is so tiny but so brave. The angle of the image is looking up from her world at how big everything is from her eyes. I flipped it and you do lead into it.
I am not a judge, don't know what they would see. I just wanted to help if possible. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Hi Stacey;

I too am not a judge, but I LOVE the horse photo and like what Sandra did with it.

Craig,

I love the red you added and the matting. It has such a warm glow. The image is interesting to me.
