Arizona State Fair - 2011 Amateur Photography Division

These photos were entered in the Arizona State Fair, in the Amateur Photography Division.  This is the last year that I can be in this division and next year will be moved up to the Pros. So I am enjoying any recognition that I get this year because next year the competition will get tougher.

This is the Roman Forum.  It was displayed but no ribbon.

This is the Sans Souci castle in Pottsdam, Germany.  It was not displayed.

This is the pond and bridge at Monet's Garden in Giverny, France.
This photo won Honorable Mention.
I have an enlarged 20x30 hanging on my wall at home and the colors are amazing.

This is the view from inside the Pantheon in Rome, Italy.
It was awarded Honorable Mention. I enlarged this photo to 20x30
and it absolutely glows.

I also entered four photos in the Black and White division.  I tried some artsy approaches to see if I could catch the judges' eye. It didn't work.

This is gatework from a church along the Elbe River, Germany.
Not selected for display.

This is the dome from a church along the Elbe River in Germany.
Not displayed.

These are the wintry steps in Montmartre, Paris, France.
These lead up to Sacre Coeur.
Displayed but no ribbon.

This is one of my favorite of the Louvre Museum, Paris, France.
I probably like it a lot because I took it on my last day in Paris with Tina.
It was not displayed.

All of these photos are available for a reprint. Let me know what size you want and I'll quote a price.
