Peggy Pfister level-classic 10/15/2014 10:39:02 AM

This is totally amazing, Ken. Grand prize in my opinion! #11159443

Harriet Feagin level-classic 10/15/2014 11:09:39 AM

Ken, I love this photo as stated before. I have a question. What category is this entered in? I have some lighthouse photos that I am entering in Landscape but got to thinking if I put them in the correct category. Man Made does not seem right and neither does travel and place. Any suggestions? Also I have a photo of morning glories on a barn wall. The flowers are important but so is the barn. Which category for that one? I miss the "Catch All" category. Thanks for any help afforded. #11159463

Lola M. level-classic 10/15/2014 12:54:25 PM

This is breathtakingly beautiful Ken!!! #11159551

Ken Smith level-classic 10/15/2014 4:52:57 PM

Peggy, Harriet, and Lola..thanks for your super comments! Harriet, I have it in N/L. I suppose it could go in T/P as well. I agree with you; catch all was nice for the reasons you cite. Check Details/Macro finalists from last month; many are more of the "catch-all" variety: Honestly, I don't know what category I'd put the barn/flower shot in. If you're somewhat zoomed in on the flowers, maybe I"d go for Flowers.
