******** Results Update *********
The results of PSA Travel Competition Round #1 have been received. Thanks to all those who have submitted work! Overall, LVPC came in at 11th out of 19 competing clubs in the “B” section. Our total score was 57 points with the top club at 65! So you can see it was a very tight field. In order to get a sense of how the photographs scored, here are the entries with the score received:
Alone in a Crowd – Pooja Dhar – Score 8
Dog Days of Summer – Buddy Eleazer – Score 10
Evening Portland Head – Bob Becker – Score 11
Shanghai Motorbikes- Howard Sherer – Score 8
Passing Rain In Bryce Canyon – Russell Heller – Score 8

What can be learned from entering competitions is that subject, light, composition, and that “wow” factor all must be present in high scoring images. For Travel competitions, a sense of place is certainly a critical feature along with “an image that expresses the characteristic features of culture of a land as they are found naturally.”
