I found out that the Flint Lensmen Camera Club is part of a larger group of camera clubs, the Southwestern Michigan Council of Camera Clubs. It looks like a collection of 15 camera clubs in the lower Michigan area.
This weekend they are having a photo contest.
I've submitted 10 photos in the contest. There are three categories that I have entries for, OPEN, NATURE and CREATIVE.
Ligonier Gazebo: The photo for me that will not quit! We'll see if it scores better with a larger audience.
Splash/Crash: I have very high hopes for this one. This will go in the local club competition this week.
Barn in Snow: This gets lots of comments. Let's see what a larger crowd will see.
Sailboat Row: I like this one a lot. it may not score well, but this is hanging in the house.
Bird on a Rope: One of my first good close ups. I've taken the positive feedback from the club to frame this better.
Gulls on Piling: This is a good shot that is made better by cropping, this is also going the local club competition next week.
Rt 381: Grunge effect of a road through a canopy of fall leaves.
Chairlift in Fall: Grunge effect of a chairlift through trees in fall.
Crisp Point: Grunge effect on a shot of the Crisp Point Lighthouse with rotted dock in foreground.
Grand haven Light: Grunge effect on a shot of the Grand Haven Light with the sun in the clouds.So I'll go out this Saturday, meet some now folks and see some great photos.
