winning member images from March 09

For the past few months we have added a new fea­ture on our pho­tog­ra­phy bul­letin board where the Admin on (Me, Marko),‚ chooses 1 photo that he thinks is great and talks about the photo. The Bicy­cle photo below titled Eqi­nox by thier­ry­lau­rent was my choice for this month. (check the pre­vi­ous link for the explanation).

We have lots of pho­tographs being sub­mit­ted each month on our forum for cri­tiques, assign­ments or just to show the photo. Choos­ing thierrylaurent’s photo as the ‹“win­nerž took‚ many hours of care­ful sift­ing. Given that it took so long to choose, I came across many many many close con­tenders. Seems like a waste of time just to include 1 photo so Ižd like to include 2 hon­ourable men­tions right here.

If you havenžt joined our forum I would encour­age you to do so. We are an extremely friendly bunch that share and learn daily.

Herežs the win­ning photo:

Equinox by thierrylaurent

    Oops! and con­grats to Thier­ry­lau­rent for the win­ning photo and to Michaelaw. I feel pretty spe­cial wedged between these two!

    Thanks for the hon­or­able men­tion! It is a real honor as I am an ama­teur. I have played with cam­eras off and on for years but never really saw the kind of progress I was hop­ing for. When I got the lit­tle D60, I wanted to really work at tak­ing it more seri­ously. The dig­i­tal has really made that learn­ing curve a lot eas­ier, espe­cially in the area of pp where you can change a photo to suit what you want from it. Whereas before,using film, if you did not have access to a dark­room, you had to take it to your photo store, explain your mods and hope for the best.

    Also, I credit Photography,ca for help­ing to take my pho­tog­ra­phy leaps and bounds beyond where it was espe­cially in the areas of basic com­pre­hen­sion and com­po­si­tion. Thanks!
