SEEN 2011

SEEN 2011 1

The opening night and awards ceremony of SEEN 2011, STL's year-end photography show and competition was held Saturday might. Above, Studio Altius' owner, David Cerven announces the winners, while studio manager Shawna Ventimiglia reacts to one of David's wisecracks. He hardly needs the step-stool since he's about 6 feet, 7 inches, or about 200 cm tall.

I didn't do very well this year. There were a number of topical categories and some of my best stuff didn't fit any of them, like this and this. It was nice to get first in Fauna with Blackbird, below, since there were a couple of spectacular macros of colorful insects, NatGeo quality stuff. I got third in Action with Night Dancer, at the bottom.

Local photo fans should check out the show. There's some very good work. Studio Altius is located at 2301 S. Big Bend in Maplewood. The show runs until early January.

Gosh I think you did really well Bob, I loved The Night Dancer and The Blackbird is an amazing image. Looks like it was a fantastic event anyway. said...

You have way too high expectations for yourself if you are disappointed in a first and third place winning photographs, both of which are spectacular, as are the photos that did not win. They probably just wanted to distribute the awards out to some more people rather letting you walk away with awards in so many categories.

Luis Gomez said...

Congratulations Bob! You actually won.

Bibi said...

I think you did very well; I like both of these shots very much.

Virginia said...

You was robbed. That's all I have to say.

Stefan Jansson said...

I'm with Virginia!

I like the dance photo.

Nathalie said...

Bob I particularly LOVE your night dancer photo. It should have come first!

Lovely to move on from Photo Menton to SEEN, I hope you'll us some of the best works.
