One of the most valuable aspects of this forum are the periodic photo challenges and sharing of work around specific themes. Based on the positive feedback I got for photos I posted to "The Real Street Thread" (Pedestrian) and for the personal favorite/best photo taken in 2010 image thread ("See Spot Run"), I submitted them to my first ever juried exhibition, the Perkins Center for the Arts 30th Annual Juried show in Moorestown, NJ. Close to 600 photos were submitted by photographers from NJ, CT, NY, MD and DE, and both my photos were chosen by the juror to be part of the show (my older son also got his entry selected). It was great to be at the opening last Sunday and to meet up with different fine arts and pro photographers. Happy to say that :43: was well represented amongst the big Canon and Nikon cameras being carried around that day (one formal looking chap had a great-looking GH-1 with 40mm 1.7 and VF; I had both my E-PL1 and E-P1, and got a number of questions about the system from one pro photographer who has been told by his doctor to refrain from lugging around his heavy Nikon equipment because it was giving him shoulder problems!). For those who live near the Philly/Camden area who want to check out the exhibit, the show runs until March 6. Thanks to this forum and the great members for providing support, inspiration and challenge. :thumbup:

Thanks

Thanks, Don, I was actually hoping I would run into you and the other Philly folk in the flesh during the opening! The juror this year was Philly fine arts photographer Rick Wright, who apparently exhibits regularly at "Dirty Frank's" (did I get that right?).
