I think I’ve just about decided to do something I’ve never done before. I may just enter a photo contest. Nature photography is one of the six primary public uses at National Wildlife Refuges, and Tamarac NWR has a photo contest sponsored by the Friends of Tamarac NWR. The contest is open to amateurs only, (I’m certainly one of them), and can only be photos taken in the last two years.
There are five categories for submission: Wildlife, Plant Life, Scenic, Nature’s Abstracts (Images of nature’s shapes, colors and patterns. Nature’s Abstracts is a creative category revealing the art in nature.), and Recreation (People enjoying the recreational opportunities on the refuge.). A total of five photos may be entered with no more than 2 photos per category. You also have to submit a title for each photo.
I’ve seen the photos from past winners, and they are outstanding! I’d like your opinion on the photos I’ve picked out so far, and some suggestions about titles. So here goes:
I’m Pooped! or ???
Bringing Home the Bacon or ???
Where’s Mom? or ???
Nature’s Abstract: (I’m a pretty concrete type person, so I struggled with this category.)
Love in Bloom or ???
Love in Bloom or ??? (I couldn’t decide which pic I liked best)
Lily of the Valley or ???
I Think I’ve Found another Snail! or ???
Little Lilly on the Prairie or ??? (I suppose I’ll have to get Sherry and David’s permission to submit this one.)
And finally, one I just picked because I like it. :
I hope you’ll take the time to tell me your favorites and suggest some titles. Or, you can just tell me to go back to the drawing board. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
