Hey Justin,

As Teri mentioned they highly recommend the black frame and matting saying that the judges will take whole presentation into account. So yeah, I figured I didn't want to shoot my shots in the foot by mounting and framing them differently. Though each shot cost me about $100, even with picking up the frames at Aaron Brothers with the buy 1 get one for $1 sale.

Now as I went through the fair yesterday, there were a few photos that won that did not have matting. There were a couple that won that had no matting and the frames were

Thanks for clearing that up Jim.

And I definitely agree, I think the display as a whole is more attractive with most of the photos framed similarly.

I got back from a backpacking trip over the weekend and was greeted with a text message from Jim with the surprising good news. What a great way to get back to civilization!

I got 1st and 3rd for B&W landscape and B&W seascape, respectively. I had color submissions too but those didn't place so I think it's time to scrap my color photography and concentrate on B&Ws!

Thanks everyone for the congratulations. These are the B&W images that won 1st and 3rd in their categories:

Hey Tuan,

Sweet! I am glad you uploaded the originals. I was looking close, but I must have missed your third place one. When I go back to the fair later this week I will look for it.

Say... post that shot from Joshua Tree that you submitted... I actually could not believe that didn't get an award... That is one really cool shot with the stars, and of all of the shots I saw there if I was doing the judging it would have gotten an award... so don't be so quick to give up on color...

They look even better here. I find them both to be spectacular, but the low angle in the second one really does it for me.

Tex Schneider also won two Blue Ribbons and two Red Ribbons for the photo he entered. Perhaps we can pursuade him to post it here.

He did win some awards, at least one really nice shot that I remember too. But he hasn't posted here in ages, that's why I didn't mention him. It would be great to have him post his shots though an become more active again here. He is a great asset.

Thanks everyone and especially you Jim! I knew my "Smart Dog" shot would be popular, but I wasn't expecting 1st place Needless to say; I'm happily surprised! My wife and I are heading over this weekend and I'm looking forward to seeing Jim's, Tuan's and Teri's work in person. Congrats to both of you!

Greg

Here's my shot for a better view. Feel free to move as I know it's not a landscape Although, it may please Jim to see this was shot with a Nikon!

Here's the JT shot as you requested Jim. It's a single image at 3200 ISO taken with a 1st generation 5D, so it has some noticeable technical issues when printed at 12x18. Hopefully I'll be able to head to the fair this weekend to check out all the other submissions, including yours and other FM'ers. It's always a treat and an inspiration to do so.

I also have several images on display at the Orange County Fair Visual Arts Competition. Three of them were recognized with awards.

Since I have been a long time lurker here on this forum and not a posting contributor, I first asked Jim Fox if it was alright to add my images to his thread. He was kind enough to say definitely!

The first one is from Acadia National Park: The Tarn Reeds
Landscape Division Winner Ribbon ~ First Place Waterscape/Seascape Ribbon and Two Jurors Award Ribbons

The second award was an Honorable Mention for Front Row View ~ White Sands National Monument

The third award was another Honorable Mention for Fill Light ~ White Sands National Monument

There is an incredible amount of gorgeous photography on the walls at the OC Fair. If you live in the area, I encourage you to take the time to visit. You will not be disappointed.

Congratulations to Jim, Tuan and Greg. Well done!

I will now try to be a posting contributor to this forum. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.

Hey Tex,

Yeah... man that Tarn Reeds shot is so amazing! Love the colors, the tones, simply amazing! It is really jaw dropping good and worthy of those awards. The only one that I thought that should have gotten as many awards as that one of yours was the Joshua Tree shot that Tuan added on here. Sadly, it didn't even get a single award, though I can't understand why it didn't.
