ash#, come to Texas and we'll fry anything you want.

Actually that was the best tasting fried item that I had that day (State Fair this year). I also had fried beer, fried margarita, a standard corn dog, and fried pb&j.

Among other fried delicacies that I missed out on: fried oreos, fried twinkies, fried coke, fried ice cream. There are more, just not off the top of my head.

I think they are great. Seems like she only ever picks winners that are professionals though, which kinda soured me on entering pictures there.(my wife loves the site and got me to enter some)

To be honest, if I was scanning through pics, I wouldn't stop at those 2. The first one seems to have the personality cropped out of it. Same for the second one, it's too centered but it lacks interest. I don't know what I am supposed to think of it. Is this horse ready to kill itself? What is it looking at? Did it go to supercuts? I want to see ears in horse pics I think. I don't know, never tried to shoot a horse.

Also, if somehow you can photoshop in a sad cancer patient, that will get it picked right away.

Repo, well played.

First one is too saturated and over-exposed for my liking

Second one is nice... looks like you used diffuse glow in it? I'd suggest darkening the grass to the left of the horse's face so that it stands out more (I tried it with the burn tool set to %21 on midtones and it looked good to me, then used the sponge to desaturate it very slightly after because the burn tool also saturates things and I think a more saturated green would distract from the horse's face). Right now it is tonally almost the same as the grass and seems to get a bit lost to me. I also think it's too light (maybe my monitor is brighter) but I'd take it down *just a bit* with curves or something. I like that it has a bit of a look of awe on its face and you don't know what it's looking at that it is so interesting lol.

I took some beach pics too over Memorial Day weekend. Spent a couple of days out at Caladesi Island. It's a pretty amazing place.

I saw a turtle!

That reminds me, don't remember if I posted this here, I had it on my facebook. This is down at the end of my street, I was walking around the block and came upon this! There is a soda can by his tail for scale!

It snowed a little on Monday and so I set up my camera to make a time lapse video.

I'm still trying to find that method that allows for good exposure at night and then again in the morning. And because of the snow, the last shots got completely over exposed leaving them completely white, so I went with it. There were a couple more hours of shots taken but nothing usable because of it. I needed to have slowly increased the shutter speed as the morning progressed, but I left it at the same settings the entire shoot.
