This week marked the end of the first contest I put on through Fine Art America. It was entitled "Your Best Piece of Work". The challenge to the artists was to go through their work, pick their best piece of artwork, and submit it to my contest. The voting process allowed Fine Art America members to vote for their favorite among those pieces submitted. The winner was Shirley Sirois whose picture is featured in this blog. I asked Shirley to desribe her creative process, the photograph itself, and below is her response:
"Steveston Harbour 1 was taken in Richmond, B.C.,Canada. Because I captured a moment which I may never see again is a reason I photograph. Since childhood,noticing the design and beauty in nature, I have always looked through the eyes of an artist and wanted to express this to others. I tried different media but photography was a constant. Because I am continually inspired with what I see or what is happening every day I don't prepare or travel for my work. It so happens that I am often surprised with the unique and you will notice when viewing my galleries that most of my images are one of a kind."
