The Carver County Fair wrapped up last week. I entered a few photos and scored a few ribbons. Not exactly the Pulitzer Prize, but it’s still fun! I might have to further refine my skills over the year and take a crack at entering something in the Minnesota State Fair next year. Any idiot can enter a county fair, but from what I understand, getting into the State Fair is tough, even for professional artists. Anyway, here are my entries.
Champion - Color photography. Blue ribbon - Floral still life/color enlargements.
Blue ribbon - Seascape color enlargements.
Blue ribbon - Architecture color enlargements.
Blue ribbon - Children black & white prints.

Zip. Guess they didn't like my blue trees.
Zero. Landscapes like this are a dime a dozen.
Nada. I really liked this church against the blue sky. Thought it deserved better.
Poor Penny got shut out. No ribbons for her.
