South Carolina State Fair 2010 Fine Art Exhibition Premiere & Awards Reception, Fairgrounds: 10 October 2010   2 comments

Posted at 12:15 am in events,venue


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.

  1. For what it's worth, I still use Photomatix to process my HDR images. Photoshop's processor is really slow and I don't feel like it has the fine-tuning control.

    Take that for what you will, since my (non-HDR) entry didn't make it into the fair at all this year. :)

  2. I've tried Photomatix, but since I'm mostly a Unix guy, I've spent more time with qtpfsgui, which unfortunately doesn't seem to align images very well and has other shortcomings. Of course, *my* shortcomings are probably the real problem.
