OPEN PHOTO CONTEST - 2nd PLACE :)

"Autumn Colors" takes 2nd in the Open Photo Contest! THANKS TO ALL THAT VOTED!


They say no one remembers 2nd place, but I'm still proud that my "Autumn Colors" photo in the FAMILY TIME category received 91.11% of the votes in David Jay's Open Photo Contest. First place went to Dan Brand whose photo received 91.19%... wow very close! Visit the website to see the winning photos.

My photo of Jennifer & Brooke took 4th place, taking 90.37% of the votes.



ABOUT THE CONTEST - This is a different kind of photo contest, it is about allowing photographers to submit their work into a contest that is not judged by a few people, but rather the masses. By using a sophisticated preference process where viewers of the site are given a random limited number of photo options and asked to choose their favorite, they are able to create a ranking system and award winners by the overall preference of everyone who votes.

THANKS TO ALL WHO VOTED!

Fantastic work Armin. I think Dan Brand's secret is kids with little winter hats (or toboggans if you are from the South like me). Nonetheless, your colors were absolutely spot on. Can't wait to learn all your techniques in March!

Beautiful work as always! The colors always amaze me. Well you get first and second prizes for color photos in that category =) Hopefully you'll get more of the recognition you deserve.

I am so proud! If I had the time to look at all of them, you may have won first! Either 2nd, or last, your eye for art shows through your photos! Good job!

Armin,
I've been following your work for quite some time and you are one super talented dude!! :-) What I find most intriguing is your background as a police officer. Way cool!

Regarding the BODA, go for the new Dry model. It's awesome!! My friend Ray just gave one away. Hmmm, I'll see what I can muster up. :-)

Would love to work and meet you one day. Until then, many blessings!
