Now that the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon is officially over, I can reveal what picture was accepted for display and what 3 pictures were given the shaft.
In case you didn’t know, the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon is one of the hardest photo competitions in the world. They only accept about 20% of the photos entered. Now you know.
The following pictures did not fare so well. The judges looked them square in the eye and said, “Get out of here kid. You have no future!”
The next photo contest on the docket is the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest. Those pictures have been selected by my hearty crew of volunteers and their order has been placed. You can check out those entries on the corner of 8th and Story in downtown Boone starting Thursday, September 7.
Here is a bonus picture:
Sara sent me a picture of she and Cousin Amy finding my picture at the Photography Salon!

I love all of them, but the chosen one IS incredibly striking. I think they all are, but that one also screams “midwest.”
Time to move on to the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest. If I do Photo Contests again next year, I’m going to make more of an effort. Of course I say that every year.
