Today is October 13th and we have a couple of weeks left for this installment. A big thank-you to all who have participated and encouragement to those of us who are procrastinators.
Nearly missed it! Been incredibly busy at work but had a chance to take a few shots weekend before last.
Hope everyone enjoys them.
I see that we have had a few more submissions and now there are only a few more days to go. I have always enjoyed seeing the MSA entries and this month is no exception.
Tonight is Halloween and I have to pick a photograph for a winner and Leader for the next round of MSA. I would like to thank everybody for their time and effort for this round. I always enjoy viewing the images for these assignments.
Bertus gave us a wonderful start with his lith prints "Curves in the Ark" and "Mirroring Ark" and finished us off with "Angles in the Qrucious Water".
ArtO had a color shot "Oak trees at Highland Memorial Park".
barbara ann had a series of images "Beach Chairs", "Lamp Post" and "Beach House Details" and her Photo "Curve of a Cane".
Kav made a nice shot of a "Covered Bridge" with a Speed Graphic.
nsuoto gave us a pair of architectural shots in color "Up the Space Port" and "Unusual Angle".
sly had a variety of nice photographs "Verandah, Morning Sun", "Standard Vanguard" , "Inky Caps in Tree Cavity", "Greenhouse Wall" and "Bikes".
I have a couple of favorites out of all of this but now I have a problem. The Photo that I liked the best is barbara ann's "Curve of a Cane". It is a really nice shot and I liked it immediately. The problem is that she lives in New Jersey and the had a hurricane tear the place apart a couple of days ago. I hope that all is well with her, but her last activity on APUG was October 23rd. I don't know if they have power or what is going on and I am getting a little worried. I may have to pick an alternate "winner" if we don't here something in a couple of days.
Love that photo! Here is hoping all is well with Barbara and the hurricane spared her surrounds.
Good choice Dave, it's a terrific photograph. I hope that Barbara and her family are doing well too. I really enjoyed the msa and want to add that I found all of the photographs to be excellent and a great encouragement in my own photo activities.
Yes, I survived Hurricane Sandy with minimal damage. Just got power back today and immediately checked APUG to find my photo had been chosen for the Sept./Oct contest! What a day brightener after a dark week! Delighted since the competing photos were of such high caliber!
Please folks, give me a day to catch my breath and I will come up with a topic for November/December. Thanks for all your good wishes. My heart goes out to all those whose lives were severely impacted by this monumental storm.
Check back tomorrow and I promise I will have selected a topic for the next contest.
That is great news. I am happy to hear that you are OK.
