I like Brian's, too. :-)

It's the first time I've ever submitted a photo for a contest. It's been so fun seeing all of the interesting pictures.

Thersites said...

Sorry folks. I'd go w/Hubert Herbut...

Jen Brimmage said...

It's very moody with all that vignetting. Feels like Halloween. :-)

My picks:

1. Mark Block -- because it's a shot I'd take.

2. Devin Wilson -- say yes to minimalism

3. Hubert Herbut -- nice POV.

Special jury prize: Jen Brimmage -- great expression enjoying the elegance. The luck of the shot.

Did you guys look at the rest of the entries? I mean, all 200? There are some AMAZING shots in there. There's one of a soldier sitting in a dark room, by an open window. It's stunning. I think it's in the first set.

Jen Brimmage said...

Darn. :-) I didn't make it into the top ten. Here's the link to the finalists...

They are all good shots.

Thersites said...

How'd the cut to 10 get made?

Jen Brimmage said...

On his blog, he said he asked his wife to pick 10.

Inspector AIPac said...

Sounds a little "sketchy" to me...

Jen Brimmage said...

heehee.
nah. I would've been shocked if I'd been picked.

Thersites said...

It would all depend upon the judge's "aesthetic". My preference (HH) didn't make the cut, either.

Thersites said...

Asking your 'wife' to pick 10 photo's would be okay if she were Dorothea Lange, but I would question the value of the "woman on the street's" opinion even if my photo's were selected. The methodology approaches "randomness".

Jen Brimmage said...

It totally depends on the judge's aesthetic. It's why I didn't really expect to be chosen. It's random.

But then, I don't know if I'd be chosen by a panel of photographers, either.

It would be rare for my aesthetic to match up to the judge's, which is what would have to happen. It's the same reason I don't try to make a living with photography. I love my vision, but it's not "popular".

Jen Brimmage said...

I participate in just 2 online photography communities. One is film and one is mostly digital. My aesthetic is more in line with the film community, which is made of up of people like me who shoot for pleasure, and have no real desire to make money from it. The digital community spends as much time talking about 'marketing' themselves and getting more "traffic' to their sites.

I guess it all depends on who you cater to.

Thersites said...

Indeed. To thine own self be true. Or as Jacques Lacan might say, "never compromise your desire."

Jen Brimmage said...

Actually, there are probably as many professionals in the film group, but there's still little or no talk about marketing. I'm not sure why.
