Take a look at the Washington Trails Ass'n Photo contests
Some stunning images of a very scenic state.

Viewing the first photo thumbnail in a series starts a slideshow with full size images.

1. I see photos like this and I feel like giving up.
Really amazing.

2. I hear that! And I've seen some stunning work here also.
But it is instructive to try to figure out how those images were accomplished, as well as a nice tribute to what our hiking trails can reveal.

7. I don't...!!!
Don't get me wrong -- there are some nice photos there. But I see few that strike me as so drastically better than work that's been posted here as to be in a different league altogether. Maybe one or two shots, but that's about it. And those only spur me on to create images that can match or surpass theirs.

Personally, I think the folks here in the Photo Group are more-than-capable of creating images equal to those on that site...or even better.

3. I see photos like that and I feel like spending $$$
on new glass, and going out to shoot for hours, experimenting with my camera. I wish that these photographers would have listed the technical info for their pictures. Beautiful shots...

4. Beautiful!
It was awarded 3rd place, and certainly not as grand as some of the others, but this was the most "interesting" of the bunch to me:

5. Which one is yours?
I looked at this late last night and I thought it read Trails Ass (and) Photo Contest. Knew it was time to shutoff all systems.

I agree with priller downthread.. one that didn't "win" top honors was definitely my fave.

8. Yea. Right

Thought one might be yours but I should have able to recall your wonderful distinctive style. Now you'll excuse me while I go knit something.
:hi:
