so I’ve never entered a photo in a competition before. I have a few for next years PPOC and maybe the WPPI but a few weeks ago I sent in a wedding image called Smart Move, to a wedding photo competition put on by Willow Paper Works.
Here’s the image:
It took 3rd place (I haven’t seen 1st or 2nd yet…) and one of the judges was none other than Kevin Kubota
There is nothing better than a professional critique on your images. I love it and I wish it would happen more often. Even the stuff that hurts your ego is great!
Here’s what he said:
Note from Kevin Kubota:#3 Smart Move 5×7 Love the originality and humor in this one! The composition could have been improved a little bit and the focus and exposure could be improved slightly, but it’s got impact – which is most important, and it’s very unique.
Really though…what was I thinking here? no shadow detail and cixelsyd yllanoitisopmoc! Thanks Kevin.
