The Blue and The Red.....Oh So Sweet.

Friday night was competition night at my camera club.
I was really nervous about the photos I submitted
but as it turns out
I chose the right photos for this particular night.

I got a blue ribbon for a photo I've posted on the blog before.
I titled it The Empty Bar.

Below is the winning photo.

I was very happy to win on this photo because it is one of my favorites.

My red ribbon winner means a lot to me also because it was in the creative category.

It was a shot that I set up with some of my books, a glass heart, and a miniature vase with rose.

I thought it came out really good but during the competition
my nerves wouldn't settle down.

This photo is more personal and therefore I was more self conscious during the critiquing and the judging.

I am happy that I got a good score.

Did I mention the highest score is 27?

And a third photo I entered did not win a ribbon but it got a score of 23.
Not bad, eh?

I've also posted this photo here before.

I sure do enjoy these monthy competitions, especially when I get high scores and win ribbons.

Mostly I like it because I am learning and challenging myself to be better. 

I hope you all enjoyed my photos.
