Shaun's Fair Picture Ribbons

Thursday, August 7, 2008

This ribbon was for Outstanding Portrait.
All ribbons are in the Amateur division. I hoped to win a couple ribbons and was pleasantly surprised. Portraits are my weakest area, so this came as a shock. I just hope I can take a few more that this great.

Below are the 1st place ribbons:

For Second place:

Third Place:

Honorable mention (I guess that is like 4th place, I think):

Thanks for letting me share my exciting news with every one. Let us know what you think.

Shaun...that is totally exciting...and the first place ribbons are totally deserved. Those are some really good photos. especially the waterfall.

Once again congratulations...and as much as I would love to have you and your family move to the lovely Brookings area...don't come open a studio...I'll be out of business.

But please come and visit, bring your camera, and we'll go adventuring.
