"Pretty in Pink" was one of my entries in the Bay Area Photo Club's "Honors Night" competition under the assignment of "Birds of a Feather." I took the shot a couple of weeks ago at the Baytown Nature Center on Bayway Drive in Baytown, TX. The shot was taken with my Olympus E-3 and Olympus Zuiko 50-200 with a 1.4 teleconverter at F4.8, ISO640 [I was losing the evening light] and 1/20th handheld. The recorded focal length was 208MM and no flash was used. The judges scored the image at a high 198 points and it won Gold and "high for the night", making me the BAPC Photographer of the Month. It's weird but I've noticed that the judges always do better on nights when I do well - go figure! :)
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
