COLOR STORY
Exhibit Catalog now available at VioVio

There is infinite potential for an exhibition such as this, which crosses subject, theme, and genre; we are equally enthusiastic to see realism and abstraction, and the not-so-gray areas that balance between. There is also limitless possibility for your choice of color story: every hue, tint, and shade applies, where it is used to characterize, describe, communicate and celebrate your subject or concept.

GENERAL COMMENTARY

I have over the years judged many contests. Normally, when I am asked to select fifty plus images for a contest, I have trouble because it is usually tough to find fifty that would truly pass my own criteria. With this contest I was caught off guard for a very different reason. I started off with 719 images and I was easily able to eliminate 300 plus images from the contest without hesitation and I will talk about that in a bit. The next 250 or so was a bit tougher because I was really seeing some strong imagery but was able to carefully go through them and one at time eliminate additional submissions. At this point it got much tougher and continued until I was down to 91 images. Never as a judge have I seen so many excellent images and I think a show of 91 would have been an fantastic show by any standard. I went back through every single image, noting things I liked or didn't like about each one and eventually narrowed it down even further. In the end I ended up with 82 images that were truly winners in my mind. Gallery space allows for 62 images so I still needed to eliminate 20.  I was able to do so but I want to reiterate that all 20 that I eliminated were well qualified in my mind to be in the show and if you were one of those photographers you should be very proud.   . . . .
