It has been a great day for Doug Petersen Photography! After entering three photos this year in the Western Idaho State Fair - Professional Division, I was very excited to arrive at the fair tonight and find that each of the three garnered a placing ribbon. The image above of Haystack Rock At Midnight won 1st place in 'Night Scenes.' (Be sure to read the description of the picture in the gallery for a quick detail of how I captured this unique image of a heavily photographed land mark.) The picture of the Beautiful Wood Canoes won 3rd place in 'Abstracts,' and the Colorful Portrait of Maya won an Honorable Mention in 'Portraits Color.' I was particularly excited about the portrait of Maya as it is not a 'typical' portrait and was competing in a grouping of very beautiful images by very accomplished photographers. It was an honor to compete with them.
All of the photographs will be on display at the Idaho Fairgrounds August 17th - August 26th, 2012. Although the prints on display are rather small (conforming to the rules), please stop by and see them if you are there!! And of course, they are all available to view and purchase as prints right here on my website. As always, please feel free to leave comments here or my Facebook page as well.
