Wow!!! 2nd Place

20D w/ EF 50mm f/1.8 1/13s, f/2.8, ISO 200, 50mm

So on a whim I entered the above photo into DPReviews new Challenges section and of 172 total entries in the Candlelight Portrait challenge I came in 2nd. Although the scoring system used is under heavy scrutiny its pretty cool to have you photo judged 2nd by your peers.

Of course I have to thank my wonderful model, Caroline, who sooner or later will figure out that she should start charging for her services. :-)


  1. Congratulations. That's a great pic.

  2. Thanks Les... Terry and I are really going to be screwed when Caroline starts insisting on a modeling fee. ;-)


  3. Well, that's just awesome! Of course it's a good shot, but to have so many others acknowledge it as such... must be very gratifying.

    Congrats dude!
