"Needed to post this,,,,to share my good news"

Hi everyone,
Well, I know everyone on here has followed me all the way up the ranks, and to some of you that has been quite the challenge..with this thick skull of mine...Well, all your hard work, and mine, has paid off...

Recently, I took the plunge and entered 2 of my water drop photos into a spring show at the gallery...There were some AMAZING work and some very talented photographers that entered also. At 7:00 last night, we all gathered around the gallery as the president went up to the mike to announce the winners....I stood there looking around at all the folks dressed in pretty dresses, the guys in there suits and ties all sipping wine and felt surprisingly relaxed. As they started announcing the winners, they announced 3 for judges merits, then the 3rd place winner and then as I was clapping for them, they said and in second place, for her waterdrop entry,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,DARLENE PALMER!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my, everyone was clapping and I know I stood there for it seemed like a century before my little legs stopped wobbling long enough for me to walk up, shake the presidents hand and accept my SECOND PLACE AWARD....Out of 37 photographers, I was number 2.....I sooooo did not expect that,,,,,and I sure didn't sleep all night,,,my head wouldn't fit on the pillow. It was such an amazing feeling knowing that I,,,who started out barely knowing how to even turn on this d90 could have my worked placed among all these wonderful artist and to then earn 2nd place. Well I just had to get up this morning and share this with all of you. You all have helped me get where I'm at now....THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart...

Darlene

Congratulations Darlene!! I am sure now, maybe.. just maybe....YOU WILL EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS ON THIS SITE!! HAHA. I have tried to drag you out of the D90 forum multiple times but you just will not do it!...all during the month of May I was just waiting for you to post some images in the Monthly Challenge...Droplets...nope...no Darlene..never ventures out of the D90 forum.. ( you do realize I am only half joking here, and the other half is out of pure ..well..tough love..)
In all seriousness I truely envy that you had the gumption to walk into that gallery the first time and put yourself out there. Keep at it!

Thanks my friends for all the kind words, and Sheri, this may sound kind of backwards, but I didn't know there was any place else to venture out to but the d90 forum,,,,I'm heading over there now and check out that monthly challenge just for you, my dear friend...lol
tough love!!!! Just came back,,, Oh myyyyyyyyyyyyyy Sheri, no wonder I come scrambling back here, I just checked out the june challenge--BUGS---some of those photographs are AMAZING!!!!! I'm not quite in that league yet,,,but I could be if you were to buy me a 300 lens...you don't have to answer today, think on it. heheheh

Okay,,,,here it is,,,my award winning photo. It was an 8x10 pic, in a 11x14 matted black frame...It looked really classy!!! even more so, now with the 2nd place ribbon attached to it...And did I take my camera that night,,,,of course not........!!!


Oh, and inside my envelope along with my money was the critique I didn't expect to find..It read:
"There's something about this. It is well presented. The color carries up and down: it's like an arrow pointing up. It has detail, the values all work well,, and you know where to look. This is one of a kind."

I've never read a judges critique before,,,I guess this is good, sounds like it to me....

Darlene

Darlene,

Looks like a dophin balancing two balls on its nose. Ooops... One of the balls burst, or is that whiskers between the two balls???

Have you ever thought about a water droplet Rorschach test? Maybe like this?







Just sayin'. Yes, I know... you're never going to speak to me again.

Charlie

P.S. Seriously, you did deserve the award. Congratulations again!

Congratulations Darlene!!
I am sitting an outdoor cafe in pouring rain posting from phone, but I had to write to say you were robbed! Your drop work has been some of the most interesting images I have seen in a long time. The added significance of your work was how you developed, experimented and problem-solved all on your own.
I do agree with Sheri that you need to venture out from the safe harbor of the D90 forum since some of the other forums talk about concepts would help solve problems or add techniques that would assist in your projects.
Again, Congratulations on the well deserved recognition of your fine work!

wow, what a great review I got,,,she loved my work,,,said my frame had a bit too much "gingerbread" on it, but otherwise a good choice...Never heard that word used in describing a frame so I asked and she said the frame had lines going through it and it was a little distracting against the picture. I said,,,oh okay,,,couldn't quite think of anything else to say at that moment. I guess I was so focused on the picture, that I didn't pay attention to that little detail, even though it was simply a black frame . Oh well, something else to think about,,but the compliments sat well with me that's for sure....
