finalists were announced and I wasn’t among them. Same story as last time, I take decent pictures for an amateur, but cannot compete with the talent thats out there. EIther need to step it up or give up. Will put this decision on hold til after Christmas, but then have to figure it out.

letterboxer has written 5 entries about this goal
I also entered this one….of my son during maple syrup season. I can submit up to five, so I need to give it some more thought and come up with three more before Sept 30th which is the deadline.
I entered two photo—here’s one of a coyote out on the frozen lake
and I wasn’t one of them. Over 200 photos were submitted and some were really extraordinary.
I realize that my photos are good, but not compared to some folks with different camera setups or more shooting skills or photoshop experience. I’ve taken a couple of classes but still have a lot to learn so I can take my photos to the next level. If I truly want to be a better photographer I need to make more of a commitment than I have. I need to breakdown and buy photoshop. And spend the time to learn it. I need to know what settings are going to work in certain situations (or at least be closer right off the bat so I can quickly fine tune to get the shots I want).
So I’m keeping this goal on my list, because I would like to enter more contests. THat will help push me to improve.
I did it! I entered! We’ve had such a mild winter, I didn’t really have ANY photos from this year that really say winter in New England. But I SO wanted to enter a shot!! So I went with this shot of a wayward golden maple leaf that the wind blew out onto the snow covered ice of Lake Chauncy in Massachusetts.
