Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Well done Brad!!!

Ya know, I wonder, I've TRIED to shoot with Ektar 100 and I just don't get the nice colours everyone else seems to get. I wonder if the film I'm getting is "bad" (I doubt it) or if the lab I process it at just sucks

Cheers,
Dave

Congratulations, Brad!

By the way, I like your shot a lot more than the rest of them... Color is the main attraction there!

Cheers,

Juan

Congratulations Brad ... I felt your photo was at least the equal of if not better than the selected winners.

The absolute class of your colour photography is a little unappreciated here at times IMO!

Thank you everyone for your comments! What's funny is when I took the photo of the lock & door I was just using up the end of the roll to get it into the mail to the lab. I was walking around the backyard & looked at the door & thought "now there's some color" I've only shot 2 rolls of Ektar since it came out. My main color film had been Agfa Optima 100 which I'm out of now. So I guess for now it will be Ektar 100. Right before I found out that had won a prize I did use Ektar in my Autocord for these shots.
