    I saw a great print from our own Steve Zimmerman at the state fair preview tonight. A few of us did not make the cut this year, but Steve's print did and it was stellar! Congrats Steve, good to see you tonight!

    Why thank you Andrew, luck of the draw I guess. Good to see you as well.

    Nicely done, Steve! I suspect it is even more amazing in person.
     
  10. Congratulations, Steve.

    I don't believe in "luck of the draw"; your image specifically "spoke" to the juror(s). You can't count on that happening frequently, as each juror comes into the selection process with his/her own visual baggage, not to mention mood(s). Your image made an impression, at the time, enough to be chosen on its own merits. Nice job!
