St. Paul Camera Club: April 2015 Salon

I was out of town when the deadline came around for submitting images for the April Salon, so I only competed in the digital competition. (Unlike prints, you can submit digital images without actually being present.)

I was pretty excited about this competition because the theme for the month was Minnesota and Wisconsin Architecture. I like shooting architecture and thought I would have lots of good images. However, I had a surprisingly hard time finding one that was good enough submit. In the end I submitted the following three images and got an 8 on the shot of the Weisman Art Museum Reflected in the University of MN Bridge.

Weisman Reflections in the University Bridge - CindyCarlssonThe judge recommended severe cropping on my image of the interior of the chapel at Lakewood Cemetery to eliminate some of the curving lines, but I think it would lose too much. Maybe I just need to go back and reshoot it from a different angle.

Lakewood Chapel - CindyCarlssonThe judge didn’t really have any suggestions for this image of the Guthrie, except that it wasn’t really an architecture print and that I should try submitting it again in a different category!
