The Winners...

So I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who weighed in with which photos you thought I should use for my art show.   I was surprised at how everyone had a different opinion on the photos.  Most of the counts were to close to really show any 1 or 2 standout winners.  I ended up using 2 of the 3 pictures I asked for opinions on and a 3rd one I hadn't previously considered.  I wanted to try and show a variety of styles - for example, I didn't want to enter 3 landscapes or 3 portrait type shots - which is why I ended up going with the 3 below.

The photos I went with are:

1)  Kill Devil Hills.  I took this photo in the Outer Banks in May - I really love the colors in this and the surfers.

2)  Prairie Dogs.  This was taken at the Detroit Zoo in June - I love the composition of this one.

3) '57 Chevy.  This one was a last minute decision.  I wanted something more architectural and this one fit the bill.  The colors are great and it is also a great representation of the Motor City.

So, if you're interested in stopping by the art show, it's being held at the Anton Art Center in Mount Clemens from October 2-24.  There's a reception for friends and family on Sunday, October 3rd, from 1-3.  If you'd like to come to the reception, shoot me an email or FB message by Sept. 27th and I'll add you to my guestlist.
