I was honored to win the 2014 Unity Point Health Methodist Proctor Red, White and Boom Photo contest for the image below.
The grand prize is not a new camera or a trip or even tickets to a concert… just a little bit of money. But it’s not about that.
I want to say thank you to all of the positive comments, likes and shares I received from this contest.
I will be posting a video up showing how I edited the image and the process that it went through. There was a comment on FB that stated the image had been “dr’ed” and was not a natural image… I’m not sure what that even means. However, I can assure anyone that the image, while not straight out of camera, only has basic lightroom adjustments and a bit of “Pro Contrast” by Nik Color Efex Pro 2 applied. So be on the look out for that video.
Again thanks for checking out my page! Be sure to like, share or comment!
I spent the weekend and early part of the week with my Family in St. Louis, MO. My wife had been suggesting we visit a place called the City Museum. Of course I had never herd of it, but she insisted I would enjoy it. As soon as I saw the School Bus hanging off the side of the building I new I would!
I didn’t get my camera out for many pictures mainly because I was busy climbing and crawling around the building’s thousands of “features.” We spent about 4 hours there and most likely could have spent another 8. If you have a chance to visit, be ready to do some crawling, climbing, sliding and jumping!
