Thanks so much for looking! I am a mom with no technical training, a good camera and a love of photo images. Because I lack the education I am always second-guessing my photos. One of my favorite things to do every summer is enter in our little county fair. It has a nice photo comp with several catagories. I usually find my items entering in Life in Our County - People and Activities. I've done fairly well there but one problem with that is the pressure of having done well in the past. Every year I get so worried that this is the year I will totally skunk. Truly though, this year I just don't have anything and I need 3 images printed and matted by next Saturday. The two things that they look for it seems to me is sort of "slice of life" or tourism-friendly shots. Please let me know what photos (adding one tonight & more tomorrow) you like best with those thoughts in mind and also of course, critiques are always welcome since I have so much to learn. Don't worry, I have four kids so if I can't take honest critiques, I'd have been in trouble by now ! Thank you all again for your time. I am really happy to have found this forum and excited to hear from you!!!
