But, lately, I have been wanting to showcase my images somewhere, anywhere, so I have started making submissions to various galleries and contests to see if I can get lucky and have my images catch someone's eye.
With that thought in mind, I have made a submission of 10 images to Photo District News's Exposure Award contest (http://RichardOwen.exposureaward.com/1) in hopes of maybe getting some minor recognition. The images are based on my "Pairs on the Square" theme that I have been working on since 2013.
If you click on the link, it will bring up my submission in a new page. Besides the top award, there is an award called the Vox Populi Award which is based on votes from viewers. If you think my images are worthy, I would appreciate your vote. The lead image is one I call "Pair of Pairs". It is one that I have shown on my blog before and I thought it would be a good lead.
Narrowing down the submission to just 10 images based on the "Pairs" theme was tough. At the beginning of the edit process, I first selected what I thought were 20 of the best images. Then I had to decide on how best to approach the theme. Do I just select images with two people in it or do I select a variety of images to show the extent of the theme. In the end, I decided a variety of images showing people, inanimate objects or, in one case, pets would work best. Anyway, I would appreciate your vote if you feel the images are worthy.
As always, make a comment!! Let me know what you think! Until next time, keep on shooting...
