Silos and Smokestacks

Gulp! I did it. I entered the Silos and Smokestacks photo contest. I can check that one off of my list. I'm kind of nervous but I'm not sure why. I'm curious to know if I'll receive any feedback from the judges. I guess that makes me nervous. Anyway, I did it. It's done and now I can stop obsessing about it. Here are the photos I submitted.

Your pictures are beautiful. I'm really partial to the first one.

I have no idea what constitutes a good picture in the judges minds but to me that photo captures the essence of the state fair that I remember from my childhood. It's perfect!

I hope you'll come back and let us know what the judges think of your wonderful shots.

Thanks for sharing them.

Warm regards,

p.s. I linked your blog as a favorite on mine. I hope you don't mind. I thought I'd better mention it because it appears that I am getting some hits already when I really thought I'd be just talking to myself. : ) I'm going to assume that whoever these folks are, they are checking out your blog too.

Have a fabulous day!

Hi Kimbers,

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my pictures. I really like the first one as well. I like how colorful it turned out. I will definitely share any comments I recieve from the judges. Hopefully they won't be too critical.

I happy to have another follower so no, I don't mind that you linked to my blog. It's nice to know someone is reading it other than me and one other friend.

Thanks again,
