View Full Version : I'll Show You Mine & You Show Me Your's

OK, lets see them. I know we could all search through old threads and maybe find many of the prints from back when we were asking for critiques. Instead though how about posting your "Accepted Prints" for all to see in one easy place? Give some details about your prints too - at least the title and whether it made loan, showcase or general.

This young lady was one of my two or three favorite seniors from last year. She had a great sence of fashion and was fun to photograph. She had actually scouted out this location and even brought the chair with her! This is my one print to merit this year; it is in the General Collection. The title is "Enchanted Elegance".

Wow! Really great stuff so far!! Linda, not shocking to me at all, those are all so beautiful! And Jackie, I'm surprised that Secret Garden was only general...
Here are mine, both general (my first PPA merits, yeah!)
After taking her picture, I decided to do a self portrait in the same style...

WOW....these are all sooooooo gorgeous and inspiring. This thread is great for someone who has never entered!
Stacey, my "thing" this summer for my portraits is chairs, I am on the hunt for all types of different ones at the anitque stores, lawn sales and my mom's house too.
Everyone has some great images so far. Thanks for sharing!

Here's mine:

http://img313.imageshack.us/img313/9614/equinoxxm9.jpg (http://www.pixlart.com)

Made it into the general collection. It is titled "Equinox".

Equinox holds a strong personal meaning for me. I shot it March 20th, 2006, the first day of Spring (hence the title). My wife—Pam—had just been diagnosed with leukemia the day before and was beginning her initial induction round of chemotherapy.

The good news is that she has completed 5 rounds of chemo, has been in remission for 16 months, and has returned to teaching. We still will be watching over our shoulders for some time and hope that the leukemia doesn't return. Should this happen, she will undergo a bone marrow transplant. But, for the time being, life has returned to normal (whatever THAT is).

Viva la Painter!

Stacey, I love everything about that!!! The image alone would be perfect, but I'd love to know how you processed it!

I love that John! It's like nothing I've seen before. And I'm glad to hear about your wife's remission. Best wishes to you both!

Stewart, I'd be willing to bet as soon as Saturday's Bath came up that it got a huge reaction! Sitting here, I said "HA" as soon as I saw it! :D

These are all wonderful and indeed a great inspiration for those of us who've never entered. Thanks for sharing!

Here are mine: "Summers' pick" and "Tennessee Morning". Both Painter images and both loan!

My first PPA print merit entitled "Smokin" General collection.

I feel like I've already posted these too many times (in various versions, etc), but here is what hung at MES and thus at Nationals for me (in the spirit of the thread):

Precious Perspective - General

Family Resemblance - Showcase Book

Love Takes Center Stage - General (this one didn't make loan or showcase, but did score 88 at MES and took the Fuji Masterpiece Award for Wedding)

And the print that did NOT hang which I had all my hopes and prayers on for POY ... LOL :-)

The second is so degraded from having to keep downsizing it I barely recognize it.

John, I love the Springtime Treasure image ... is that Painter? Very nice!

Thanks for the kind words! No Painter on that one...just some blurring and masking in photoshop. I actually entered a butterfly image (A Moment's Rest) that I thought for sure would merit, but didn't. It was worked over in painter, and I thought it looked pretty good. Oh well, who knows.
