Some friends of mine and I are anxiously awaiting the results link to go live. Just wondering if anyone got to be there. I got some great feedback from someone who watched them judge a couple of my images my first year which was really helpful to me.

I was there working as part of the print crew. Post your iimage and I'll see if I remember it.

I saw the first and the last one but don't remember the score. I do remember that I saw the first one (the one with the pirate chest) when they were doing the "in's and out's" - but I don't remember if it was in the 80-81's or the 78-79's. Sorry - but there were a lot of images there.

No biggie. I know we all get anxious around print competitions. Interesting that the #1 went in the ins and outs because that was my "throw it in an finish the case" image. I didn't expect it to do very well. The fact that it was debated is encouraging.

Results are in. My worst year ever. First year getting no seals. I'm pretty crushed.

Sorry to hear, Brekke!

I may not be entering our district comp this year b/c I don't think I'll have anything worth submitting.... I only had one seal this past year, which was disappointing. I shoot mostly natural light outdoors, and those just don't seem to score well. I only submit what I shoot as part of my business. I know some set up shots with models specifically for comp.... If I were in a rush to get my masters, I think I'd do that.... but I'm in no hurry ;)

Sorry, I must have had a senior moment there - it couldn't have been in the ins and outs because of the score - oh well, I was in and out of the rooms all day, so I must have seen it when it was on the turntable to be judged and misremembered it as being in the review section - sorry 'bout that...
