OK…I think most of you know I’m in the early stages of competing in the 2015 Wildlife In Focus Photo Contest. The support that I’m getting from friends and family is overwhelming. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.
I keep getting asked to post some of my images that I plan to submit to the judges. I just can’t do that! I made the mistake of showing 2 of my 2013 images before the judging, and I think it might have hurt me. I’ve been pretty clear that I didn’t do as well as I wanted in that contest, and I don’t want ANYTHING working against me.
I’ve made a lot of images that I really like, but for various reasons they aren’t right for this competition. I have been showing them on Facebook, and will continue to do so.
I have maybe 10 possible “contest worthy” already selected. The odds of them making the final cut vary. I’ll be safe and keep them tucked away until the final 100 get submitted.
I don’t want to let the other photographers know what I’m doing! They’re good enough without my help…
