"The Wagon Room"
by Jeff Heyer
The image is of the wagon room at Old Fort Bent in southeastern Colorado. Old Fort Bent is a reconstructed fort from the mid 1800's. Trappers and traders used the fort as a stop over place on the Santa Fe Trail. The image is an HDR blend of of three images; the images were initially edited in Lightroom, imported into Photomatix, and reprocessed in Lightroom
Fort Worth Wins 48th Annual
October Third 2013
This year was our turn to host the annual DFW photo contest with the Dallas Club. Each club entered 15 prints and 15 digital images to be judged and scored from 1 to 5 points by each of three judges. Members of each club were restricted to enter no more than one image in each category.
This year’s judges were Jim Murray, David Thomason, and Kevin Brown.
We beat Dallas 185 to 153 in prints and 153 to 145 in digital.This marks the 7th consecutive year we have won the contest and kept “the bird” a trophy the winning club gets to keep for the year.
Our club’s 30 entries represented the work of 26 of our members, an indication of the number of fine photographers in our group. It should also be noted that we had 9 Masters and 6 Class A photographer’s prints in the contest and 6 Masters, 5 Class A and 4 Class B photographers images in digital.
Our club took all four places in prints as well as 2nd and HM in digital.
Congratulations to our print winners
