DAPPLED LIGHT
Sitting at a sidewalk cafe waiting for lunch with friends, I just had to go get my camera from the car for several shots from the underside of this colorful umbrella and the shadows of the leaves above. I was glad that they took so long to bring our lunch to us.

August looks good so-far. I think I can only enter one image the way this all works so here are my first two:

8/1 - Capitol Elegance - Travel and Place
8/2 - Dappled Light - Catch-All

  Wouldn't let me enter. I didn't think I had this one because some of you had one for August 3 earlier this morning so I just decided to enter Aug. 4; hence no little box for my #. I think different judges for different categories submit at different days and times.

So....I'll just put it in here tomorrow.

Since I can only put in one, I'll put in the most recent one. I've spent all day on editing my child photo shoot and have some good ones, surprisingly enough. It's just crazy how two-year olds are non-stop motion. And she always wanted to be in the sun not the shade. I just ditched the tripod and followed her around with my camera. Will post one after this.

I would not have gotten this image if I hadn't used both my tripod, release and my graduated neutral density filter system. It was such a magnificent morning and my shot needed very little Photoshop because of the GND filter.
Set-up: tripod with shutter release, ISO 200, Aperture at f/11 with a shutter speed of 1/40 second.

It appears that August is bringing us another good month for the Phellos!

This one was at the photo shoot I took for my sorority sister's grandbaby. And I'm delighted because I rarely make it in the "People" category.

A COLORFUL MOUNTAIN TOWN
Park City, Utah -- a colorful, eclectic town tucked up into the mountains above Salt Lake City, some thirty minutes away. Wonderful eateries and lots of expensive stores for the rich and famous. I walked into one pet accessory store thinking I'd bring something back for my golden retriever. I picked up a jewel-encrusted collar that was only $580. In your dreams, Sampson! But the "looking" is free!

A HAND-PAINTED LOOK - ACBP - Elective
I have selected this image as one of my electives for certification because it represents my love for and continuing learning of Photoshop techniques and layers to add creativity to my images.
Set-up: Because children rarely stay in one place I chose to place her in the shade of the patio and chose a wide-open aperture, an ISO of 250 to be able to have an acceptable shutter speed to capture her at 1/200.

Congrats everyone. There are some amazing shots here.

This is an old shot, remember the horses eye. I entered it in the Jefferson County Fair, and it won its division (animals) and it won over all for its class.

On our recent vacation to Golden Lake, Canada, my 9 year old daughter, Abi, went fishing with a friend of ours and caught a Walleye. She was pretty excited! The guy who runs the place where we stay fried it on the beach the next night on an open fire - very cool and VERY good!

Taken without flash, but with fire light and a lantern nearby. Slight paint filter applied.

I am putting this one in because I thought this was good enough for an EP a while back and finally got around to re-submitting it this month.

Just because I liked this image when I took it a long time ago and since having taken classes and learning about High pass and a lot of other things, I went back to it and "upgraded" it. So this EP means something to me.

Utah's House of Representatives was not in session when we visited but we were able to see this gorgeous room. There is a lot of symbolism in the ornate decorations in this room. For example, the beehives along the grillwork represents the industriousness of Utah's people and the crosses stand for the harvesting of crops and their abundance. I was struck by the wonderful, lush colors in the architectural design of the entire building.

I came home from a weekend to Denver and opened up my email and found that I had received THREE honorable mentions for my ladybug submissions in the yearly Butterfly Pavillion's Calendar. Here they are. I will have to enter threads two more times to get all three but here goes nothing. I am very happy. I would prefer being put in the calendar three times than get one placed winner anyhow.

One more for today - just found this one.

8/29 - Simplicity - Flowers

I've noticed a falling off of announcing EP's because of the discussion on "devaluation". I still like seeing what everyone is getting EP's for, but am wondering if there are enough folks who don't want to do it, perhaps there should be some changes. Calling Aimee....maybe we need an Executive decision here. If we just announced our Finalists my fear is that there wouldn't be that many pictures or people to celebrate because the stakes get much higher at that level.

  I agree that I love seeing what everyone is doing so maybe posting just your favorite EPs if you don't feel like posting them all. I will have to send a message out to everyone tomorrow along with a link to the new thread. :~)

  Hey Debbie and Aimee - just voicing my opinion :) I have not posted my last few EPs because of the thread Debbie mentioned - I wasn't sure what we were supposed to do now. But I agree that I like the EP thread. I enjoy getting to see what everyone is doing in one place, even if they are given more frequently :)

  I am not sure what I miss here....on "devalution" but I personally like seeing the EP for one it gives us a chance to see other pictures that have not been posted in the club, or even if it is the only one that has been posted in the club that get EP we all want to see that isn't that why we have this club is to help of each achieve getting EP's? I know it has been for me. I personally want to thank all of you for your patience and willingness to help be, I have grown so much since joining this club. its like having another family I love it, I look forward to the laughs I get from all of you.

  Just to set the record straight. I think we should post EP's. It sort of validates the process we go through. It just sounded like some folks, and not just in this group, think that EP's are being given too freely and therefore getting one didn't represent what it used to. I feel somewhat that way as the last two months have been crazy with EP's. I know it will swing the other way; it always does. I think we should celebrate our Finalists and any placed winners also , but just do it right in with the EP's. But if individuals don't want to then I would respect that point of view as well.
