Honorable Mention earned in the Oakland County Parks Photo Contest

As readers of my posts know, I enjoy entering photo contest. Photo contests are a great way to put your photos out for other to see, to get your name out there and see what people think of your work. With small contests the categories are pretty specific as in the annual Oakland County Parks contest. I enjoy the outdoors, I enjoy parks, I enjoy people watching in the parks and Oakland County is right next-door so why not. And the result was an Honorable Mention for my “Buhl Lake Fisherman”, and a wonderful evening in a beautiful park.

Results of 2017 Trierenberg International Super Circuit are in

Once again I have had work accepted and send on for final judging. Five of my eighteen submissions went on to final judging. Alas, none won, but they say if you can get even one accepted in this international juried photo show in Austria, your work is pretty damn good.

Here are three of my submissions that went on for final judging.

Third place!

My photograph of the Ellis Barn took third place in the Historical category in Oakland County’s inaugural “Pics of the Parks” photo contest. The contest judges included photographer Linda Solomon and Tony Bennett. The Ellis Barn photograph was a last-minute entry made possible with the help of digital technology and the folks at the Parks department. With only forty-eight hours notice, I was able to find a suitable subject (the barn), photograph it, process the image and get it submitted just before the contest closed. My photograph, along with all the other entries are now display at the Somerset Collection in the South Rotunda. The Ellis Barn, constructed in 1884 on Dixie Highway in Clarkston, was part of the Ingomar Stock farm that was owned by the Ellis family. It was moved to it current home in Spring Oaks Park in Davisburg in 2005.

Of special note: The Ellis Barn is the only barn in Michigan included in the book “The American Barn.”
