Chris, What a fun event!  My daughter takes incredible pictures and I have been trying to get her to enter her photos.  This type of event sounds perfect.  Maybe I can find something like this either here or NYC.

I had the same question as Joan.  I like how you've been doing the announcements of goings on.  I may try to do a few myself based on the ideas I'm getting from you.

Hi Joan -- I love photography, have taken a bunch of classes, experimented a lot, etc., but I think I would probably get slammed if I were to enter, as I have seen a few of these competitions and the capabilities of amateur photographers is downright impressive, but it's really not my thing, but I do love to go and look at others photos.
Hi Marchel -- Perhaps you could showcase some of her work here on AR as a localism post?
Hi Sondra -- I love writing posts about current happenings, don't do it nearly enough, but I myself have found things this way online that I attended that I may not have otherwise, it's great how smaller the world is becoming and more interconnected.

HI CHRIS!  Well, the deadline is tomorrow - hope there are lots of entries.  I'm not a good photographer and admire those, like you, that take classes and experiment!  I still think you should enter - but you better do it quick!

Chris, This sounds like a fun competition to be a part of. If I were in your neck of the woods, I'd love to compete, as I love taking pictures.

Hi Gabrielle -- I'll pass, but thanks for the words of encouragement! :)
Hi Sandy -- I agree, it is fun anticipating to see what shots will turn out -- composition, settings, etc. Always something new.

Chris - My youngest son is majoring in photography and his photos put mine to shame.  However, he is now a professional so guess this contest is not for him.
