The Professional Photographers of Canada had their yearly Image Salon (fancy word for photographic competition). You are allowed to enter four images and all four of mine did fantastic – receiving one “Excellent” score and three “Merit” scores. The competition is divided between Portrait and Commercial photography classes, and I entered 2 into each class. That was dumb of me, as with the scores I received I would have been in Contention for Canada’s Photographer of the Year Award (Portrait, or the Commercial category) if I had entered all four in either the Commercial or Portrait Categories. As it was, 2 in each doesn’t qualify me for being in a finalist for either. Bummer! My Excellent scoring image called “Moody Blue” was selected to be part of the “Loan Collection”, a collection of the top 50 Images in all of Canada that represent the very best of what Canadian photographers are capable of producing.
Here are my four images:
