    Not a problem Jorge.

    Most of the jurors here know me so they know they can tear my work apart with critiques without fear of offending me. This makes for a much more thorough critique so people can learn the ins and outs of making a merit print.

    I like the B&W version. I also like the "mocha" color on it too. I don't know much about how it will look in the judges eyes but I personally like it.

    Do they allow Triptychs as submissions? Greg, your image is a lot like one I shot a while back but I made a triptych out of it. I really like the image series but I don't know if it would work as a competition image.

    I attached a copy of the image. I have thick skin too and I don't mean to divert attention away from Greg!

    The first image was shot with a wide angle lens because I was trying to build tension and show the stress of the need for the cigarette. The second and third image was shot with a telephoto lens. The second image was the subject taking it all in and pondering the relief he is about to experience and the third shot is his pure satisfaction as he exhales.

    Would something like this fly at competition?

    Joe, I love that series! Really tells a story. As for comp, I have no idea but I do know that when more than one image is presented like this, they all must be merit worthy on their own.

    Awesome series Joe. Posting those images here is fine. It fits right in with what we're discussing which is how to turn a good shot into a merit image.

    Greg, why not just reshoot till you get what you want on this one, instead of trying to rework in photoshop?

    That would be a little tough Greg. Or just another excuse for him to come see you or you him.
