A few of my best for 2 Contests

I spent a week selecting some of my best 10 images from the last few years. I submitted 3 for the final review at B&H Event Space’s Portfolio review geared towards a possible show at SohoPhoto http://www.sohophoto.com/ and all 10 for the New York City Camera Club http://lloydspitalnikphotos.com/contest4/.

I also sent them, plus thousands of others, for $55 to the Copyright Department https://eco.copyright.gov/. Something all artists should do.

This is my first venture into this side of photography. I was a professional fine artist for over 15 years and know the dog-eat-dog gallery world well. I don’t expect much to come of this but it has been a marvelous learning experience.

      Thank you. One hopes that after a few years of work a few come out well. 🙂

    Well done, Sherry!! Good luck with the contests. My Dad always used to say “You can’t win, if you don’t try!”

    Interesting pictures. I like what you did with them, especially the White-throated Sparrow. The background is mysterious and subtle. The Hermit Thrush, by contrast, is cheerful and bright. some of these should be winners.

    I am not fan of B&W photography. For the B&H Portfolio final I chose 3 that I feel represents me as a nature photographer. The NYC Audubon cometition is for nature photography. The only B&W work I’ve done was of snowy street scenes. I would rather shoot nature than architecture so did not use those. I may choose a type of photography someday. I’ll need to feel insired to have it hold my attention.
