As I mentioned a few posts ago, I entered 4 prints in my camera club's annual photo competition and I won 2 Honorable Mention ribbons for the photos displayed above. Not bad since I didn't have time to really try too hard and the competition was fierce. :)
The "Northern Red Anemone" was taken with my slim Casio digital camera during my recent trip to Boston's New England Aquarium. The "Chopsticks" photo was my first attempt to take a still life photo. I saw these colorful chopsticks at a store and I knew there was a picture in there somewhere. However, after I purchased them and brought them home, I photographed them at every angle with my Canon 20D digital camera, but wasn't satisfied with any of the photos. Finally, I thought about buying rice to "add" some extra effect. I would like to think that helped the image.
