Up To the Minute...

For the last few weeks, I have been involved in several small photo competitions. The first is at . In this competition the theme was "silloutte". I entered a photo that I had captured at a recent wedding in Gulf Shores, Alabama. My efforts produced a first place win in my first competition on that website.
"The Honeymooners"

The second competition I was involved with is at . Here I had qualified for this quarterly challenge with a photograph taken several months ago. This quarterly "Mega" challenge was made up of photographers who placed in the top 5 in votes for the photographs they entered in the qualifying rounds. The theme here was "The Elements". I chose to enter an image that was built in several steps, a layered composite. It followed a very basic and literal interpretation of the theme. When the final scoring ended, it had done well with the judges, but not well enough to win. Maybe next time!

"Tungsten No.74"

Congratulations Claire and Danny!!!

On August 2nd, 2008 Claire and Danny were married in Gulf Shores, Alabama. With the wind in their hair and sand between their toes they said their "I Do's" as the gulls and waves sang in the background. It was an awesome weekend filled with go-carts, putt-putt golf, and a beautiful couple becoming one. Claire and Danny, I wish you all the best that life has to offer, and I was flattered to be your guest and photographer on your wedding day. May God bless you both!
