South Carolina State Fair 2010 Fine Art Exhibition Premiere & Awards Reception, Fairgrounds: 10 October 2010 2 comments
The Fine Art Exhibition Premiere & Awards Reception was in the Cantey Building on the evening of the 10th, and there was a pretty good crowd present.
My batting average improved this year, and I got both of my entries into the show:
I didn't win anything, but I didn't really expect to. I'm happy to note that I saw some photos that I felt were not as good as mine, and a number that I had to admit were better.
The Gervais Street Bridge was a popular photo subject this year, and in fact I had taken two sets there myself, but they didn't come out as well as I had hoped. I also saw a number of shots that I'm sure were HDR composites. (One I'm absolutely sure of, and a number of others I was "pretty sure" of). I've been playing around with HDR as well, but haven't really gotten it to gel yet.
There was a buffet, and wine
but the produce was not on the menu
A surprisingly high percentage of the award recipients were present for the awards presentations
after which we milled around for a while and
looked at the student art as well
and went home :-)
Here is a PDF of the event program with all the award winners.
