Digital Lightroom Contest – Still Life Short List

Since I am not a finalist in the competition, I have no problem with asking my readers to partake in the voting at Digital Lightroom Still Life Contest – Short List.

I have cast my vote, but unlike the last contest, I decided not to give feedback.  I did not see anyone else giving any, so it felt presumptuous of me to do so.  Plus, I think I might have come off as a bit of a jerk (surprise!) when I gave feedback for the Movement and Motion contest short list.  

Not that I was trying to . . . I explained my selection process, and give my reasoning for each of the photos.

Now, here’s the interesting thing . . . I must have a different concept of still life than what the judges have; I thought only four photos qualified as meeting the theme.  Stretching it a bit, maybe two more.  Not to say the others were not good photos.   Quite the opposite.    Still, the photo I liked the best (but did not vote for) was not what I considered still life.

And yes, it may be that still life is a much broader category than I understand it to be.

Those are all amazing photos, and all are much better than my entries, so this is not a case of sour grapes (Hey!  . . . I should have done grapes!).  I know; no one believes me when I say so.  Oh well; the life of a misunderstood person would be a difficult one if they did not have a thick skin.

Anyway, click HERE, and cast your vote for whichever photo captures your imagination. 


Please, if you are considering bestowing me some recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline nominations whereby one blogger bestows an award onto another blogger, or group of bloggers.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I would much prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would actually mean something to me.

Should you still nominate me, I will strongly suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog.  If you wish to know more, please read below.
