I am happy to report that my print, titled "Barn at Sunset", received a score of 96 and was honored with a Judge's Choice and a Professional Photographers Society of New York State Court of Honor. www.ppsnys.com

It was suggested that I give some details about this barn which I've passed by many times in my travels around town. Last November I challenged myself to create an artistic photograph during such a barren time of year and I thought of the barn. It is starting to deteriorate and I wanted to capture it before it's gone.
Located on Clarkson-Parma Townline Road north of Ridge Road, it's not far from my home. I captured the image during sunset to catch the glow. I loved the weeds in the foreground and made sure to enhance them in the finished image.
The final image was just what I'd hoped, but I never expected it to receive such high honors.
I am thrilled!
