Photos: My Pictures of the Week that Became Editor's Picks

Here are three photos that made this week worthwhile. All of them became Editor's Picks this week at Better Photo (dot) Com.

Title: Grey Heron   Date Entered: 12/2/2010  Category: Animals

Title: The Honeymooners  Date Entered: 12/3/2010  Category: Travel and Places

Title: A Little Ringed Plover  Date Entered: 12/4/2010  Category: Animals

This is just the first step in the process of getting a photo recognized for an award. You could call it Round One. From there it has to make it into the Finalist batch (Round Two) and if the Judges decide your photo is the creme of the crop, it can go on to become a Winner.

One of these days, I'll put together a series of Photography Tips and explain some of the things Judges look for in Photo Contests. Competition can be fierce but, there are a few things, other than taking good photos, involved in the process. If you learn them, it gives you an edge.

These pictures may, or may not, go any higher in the competition. They are all I've entered in the monthly contest for December, so far. Three Editor's Picks made it a good week for me !
