Perfect Score

As many of you are aware, I am a member of the Livonia Camera Club (LCC).  I have been a member for a few years now.  The club meets twice a month for club competitions.  The first meeting of the month is for the digital projection division (DPD) competition and the second is for the print division competition.  I compete in both, but I tend to submit more to print rather than DPD because I like how my images print, but hopefully that will change once the club makes some adjustments to our projector’s calibration.

So for April’s print competition, I scrambled at the last minute to gather two monochrome and two color prints to compete.  The monochrome prints did okay, but one of my color prints did really well.  It received a perfect score of 27!!

I am excited because it is my second perfect score this year, the other being for my print “Amish Road” which I wrote about in my April 2, 2015 blog.

This photograph was taken back in the fall of 2012 when my wife and I took a mini fall vacation to Traverse City, Michigan.  This was taken on the scenic loop road you can drive in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park.  This taken before I had my full frame DSLR, so this was made with my old Canon XSi DSLR camera with my Canon 24-70 f/2.8L lens.  It is a three shot HDR image bracketed +1 & -1 stop from f/18, 0.5 second.  The ISO was 100.  The image was processed in Photoshop CC utilizing Nik’s HDR Efex Pro 2.

I hope you enjoy the image and as always, please feel free to leave comments or questions below.
