    Haven't been posting much of anywhere of late, had a busy summer.

    Nevertheless, my urbex class is going to have an exhibit. There's 21 possible pictures and 30 possible people to show. So -- not sure if I'll get in or not, but I'd really like to. Wish me luck!

    We had a really looooong session last week where we looked at 8-10 photos from each and every one of us, so I have a good sense of what people saw.

    I think my crowning glory is this piece, taken with my M8. It is, shall we say, quite different from the other pieces. For a show, sometimes that's a problem, but not for this one, I don't think.

    I also submitted this piece and this piece.

    For anyone curious, here's the entire class's photos. All 701 of them. Some of my favorites: rusty nail, portal, cell lines squared, abstractlights, and apocalypse.

    Thanks everyone! I should hear in a couple of days, so at least it won't be protracted waiting.

    In theory, I should have heard by now, but I haven't. Now I'm anxious. Sigh.

    BTW, I really owe this forum and mu-43.com for this honor -- I wouldn't really have tried Nik Color Efex Pro without the sponsorship contest over on mu-43. I used only Aperture and Nik Color Efex Pro's Saturation Stylizer to get the final image.
