Our state convention ended today..I entered 2 prints, and a folio of a h.s. senior girl session. This was my very first print competition. :eek:
Don Chick was a judge, so I made it a point to seek him out at the print show and he critiqued my entries. I didn't watch the actual judging because there were seminars that I really wanted to see. Next year I am going to volunteer for print committee so I can see and be a part of it.

Result: The folio received a 78. The main 'faults' - not enough variety of expressions and lighting issues (it was a beach session and I knew there were lighting issues, but I just wanted to enter something portrait-related.)

Dew Point - 78

Exotic Beauty - 81 (it was apparently challenged - a 79 was crossed out! :D )

Thanks to all who offered critiques and suggestions! I wouldn't have entered if it wasn't for the support at this forum. And I wouldn't have done as well without all your help. I can't wait to enter again!

Cassandra,
78 and an 81 on your first comp. Way to go. Isn't Don Chick the cats meow?
So happy to have him in our association.

Way to go! Work up 2 more and send them on to national.

PS you do not need to send 4 to national but it cost the same so why not.

Thanks everyone! Jeff - you're right, Don is awesome. I had to look for his nametag though when trying to find him - he doesn't look anything like his avatar here! ;)

Cassandra, You were not wearing your glasses at the Conference so I didn't recognize you at first!!! It was a pleasure to meet you.

Your print scored a 79 at first and Hellen Yancy challanged the score. I had the score in the merit category to start with and Hellen did an excellent job of convincing the others to bring their score up.
