Thanks Frank. Should have known better.In another contest here, I'd read this: "Only those with entries may vote." There you go, another case of incorrect assumption. Duh.

The votes are in and we have a winner: Sweetlight

Congratulations!

Sweetlight has been contacted and will choose September's theme.
Due to vacation schedules, there will be no competition in August.

Congratulations Sweetlight! Besides the subject and the light I thought your cropping added extra drama. Beautiful.

Re: July 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

Once again senility has stricken and just today, August 13th did I discover I had won. Wow.....
Thanks to everyone who voted as whole, not only for me but for others as well. Diversity of ideas feeds the creative pool and we all learn from these exercises.
I was hesitant to submit this image as I was unsure that it could stand on its own without the rest of the body of work included. Once again I have learned to rely on the wisdom of my instructors and mentors before. I was once taught that the truest test of the validity of a body of work, i.e.; photo story, documentary etc. was to view and/or read it's contents while fragmented, or basically view each image alone and if it as a single image can tell the story by itself then it should remain. If a single part of the body is not strong then the body as a whole will not be either most likely..
I think sometimes as artists we become so involved emotionally in our subject that it can become problematic for the body as a whole. I know for me, sometimes my work is like a child and I do not want to let go of it. Although emotions are a great source of insight and creativity, too much emotion can dilute the process.
Enough rambling, thanks everyone and I will pass on my September theme to the "powers that be".


Chris
