Cement Boots

It occurred to me the other evening that I've been busy busy busy with a number of projects and as such we're behind a story or two. The past few months have seen me sheparding my long-term baby to completion while moonlighting as a photographer and getting very little sleep. However, all this effort is paying dividends this fall. I have entered two photography contests, one of which I was shortlisted for. Very exciting, in deed. And, I'm happy to report that evenings are now a bit freer so service shall resume shortly.

I hope you'll take this opportunity to voice your opinion on which three of the following six images best immortalize travel photography to you. (Images are posted in order shot over the past 8 months, NOT my personal preference.) As you can see, I've stuck with Scotland as my destination and tried to choose one iconic image, one human interest image, and one landscape (although most know I excel at landscapes).

Edinburgh Castle after the Storm, February 2007

Speyside Steamer, Glenlivitt Distillery, May 2007

We like the castle, drummer and the last picture (Eyemouth). Hope that helps

Of the six photos, I like "Gullane Point" because it shows the broad picture of the place, including the water, the beach, the bluffs and even an interesting sky. I like "Speyside Steamer" because it tells a little about what's happening in this place. And, a good travelogue also needs some detail at the personal level, such as "Street Drummer". Those are my three picks.

My favorite is the the castle. Second would be the drummer, and third would be Gullane Point. Though it would be a tad better if you could create a bit more contrast between the drummers dark skin and his dark uniform (photoshop)because they tend to muddle together... If you can't do that, then maybe pick a different pic for the third choice. I just like that the drummer creates a story, so would prefer that one to work out if it could.

I am sending you a message via FB too today, so keep an eye out for it. It's about your CV....
