Hawaiʻi Photo Expo

Just sent in my entries.

A contest for local photographers, the Hawaiʻi Photo Expo is a full juried competition. A local contest, but a decent one, the entries will hang in the Wailoa Center gallery for a few weeks.

I sent in three entries, including two of the starscape shots I took over the last month. The third shot is from last year’s expedition from Juneau to Anacortes.

My chances of winning? I think my entries are fairly strong. Looking through the archives of past winners I feel my images are as good as anything there. I should be competitive at least, the rest is up to the standards of the jurors.

There are still a few days left to enter, the deadline is March 16th. Have any really good photos?

    1. Yes, I had not noticed, but checking the charts it is indeed Eta Carina rising. You can also see the cluster NGC3114 just up and to the west. The nebula rises high enough to photograph, I shot a series on it a couple weekends ago resulting in a decent photo. It will publish later this month.
