Gibbs Gardens Photo Contest

Gibbs Gardens Photo Contest

For anyone who can get to Gibbs Gardens in Ballground, GA, they are having a photo contest this year. The deadline is September 20, 2015 and here is a link to their website: The images will be displayed during the Waterlily Festival Oct 3-11, 2015. The images submitted must be created at Gibbs Gardens and is open to amateurs (photographers making less than 51% of their income from photography). I am honored to have been selected to be one of the judges for the event as well as my better half, Evelyn, and Marvin Price is the third judge. Please don’t sneak images for us to look at before hand. I encourage you to enter. There will be 50 images selected to be on display during the Festival for viewing.

This was one of my favorite images from last year during the peak of the waterlily season. It was shot using my Tamron 16-300mm Di-II VC PZD Macro lens, Aperture Priority, f16, -.7 stops of exposure compensation, ISO 100, resulting in a shutter speed of 1/5th of a second, Marumi Circular Polarizer, processed in Lightroom CC.
