Photo: Looking Out

Exhibition: 2018 Rendez-vous • Image Photo Fair

Taken: October 15, 2017

Used: January 26, 2018

Camera: Canon 6D MKii and EF 25-105mm lens

Location: Williamsburg, Virginia


I took this looking out a window in Williamsburg, Virginia and to be honest, I didn't really know what to do with it at first...  I decided to work on it and hoped to make the shadows around the window as important as the view looking through the glass.  It was selected for the digital "Borders" exposition at the 2018 Rendez-vous • Image Photo Fair held in Strasbourg, France.



A friend suggested I enter the Manitowoc Area Visitor & Convention Bureau's 10th Annual Digital Photo Contest in hometown of Wisconsin, Wisconsin.  My photos won in three categories, 1st and 2nd place in the "Coastal-Nautical" category and 3rd in the "People Having Fun" category!  Winners were announced in the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter on December 12, 2017 in the article Manitowoc visitor's bureau photo contest winners 'promote our stunning coastal location'.
