If everyone remembers, I asked a while back about some images that I should enter into the Fotoclave, a photography competition of 3 Northern California camera club councils. I was able to get 4 acceptances and I won fifth-place in the Digital Photojournalism category with Terror of Happy Hollow – San Jose, CA. The Fotoclave competition includes 3 different Northern California Camera Club Councils, representing about 23 photo clubs. Each council was allowed to submit 20 images per category. There were many, many incredible photographs in the competition and I don’t envy the judges that have to make the decisions on winners. I am very excited that one of my images was able to stand alongside of the others. Additionally, thanks to my family for making the photograph possible.
The annual Fotoclave competition is coming up and I am considering entering some digital images and perhaps try my hand at a print or two. (maybe). The categories are Color Pictorial, Creative, Travel, Nature, and Photojournalism. I am allowed two entries per category, and then my club picks from all entries 20 per category to move on to the larger competition.
I only have two creative images, so that is easy for me to decide, and I am way out-classed in everything outside of color pictorial. So what I’m asking for help in, is choosing the two images to submit, and perhaps two I should make prints of, for the color category.
Digital entries have a long-edge max of 1050 pixels, so details may get lost, which is what gives a preference for high detail to get printed.
Or if you had other favorites that I didn’t list, please suggest it. Let me know your two favorites. Thanks!
