So I did it. I sent in my work yesterday to the Dave Brown Project 2nd Semiannual Competition. The 4 I ultimately chose were: Custer Valley (renamed South Dakota), Minnesota Sunset (renamed Minnesota), Baxter State Park (renamed Maine), and Lake Towada Dock (renamed Lake Towada, Japan).
Mr. Dave Brown has already provided me with some feedback, which I greatly appreciate. He felt that images 2 and 4 (Minnesota, and Lake Towada, Japan) were the strongest of the 4. What that means, not exactly sure. Does it mean they're all bad, but 2 and 4 are less so? Not sure. Will I make the top 25 or even the winning 7? Most likely not, but I'm happy I did it win or lose. I'm not tyring to be all self-defeating here, just realistic.
I've put the 4 images up here again. If one wins or is recognized and you want a print, lets talk :)
