DCist Exposed is the show, and I'm able to submit up to 3 photos for selection. The idea is that they be in the 'general geographic area'. Still, judges have provided some information on the blogs about the fact that while they prefer local images, ones taken in farther locations can certainly be submitted. They are just less likely to be chosen unless they are truly spectacular. In essence- it'd be a throwaway entry (which is a bummer- cause I've got some sweet shots from Nice). Photos of common landmarks are also discouraged. The one photo that I KNOW I'm going to submit, is this one:
And this is where you come in. I've whittled down some of my favorite local photos (and one or two 'throwaways') and posted them below. You can click each image to see a larger version on black, if that helps you choose. Winners are selected by January 14th, so there's even a quick turnaround for me to report back and let you know if I got in! Please post a comment and let me know which 2 of the photos below you think I should submit!
I gotta admit feeling a little weird about including a self-portrait in the pile, but I took it this weekend and really like the lighting effect going on in there (and THEY don't know it's a self-portrait, plus I haven't seen... uh... ANY... in the submission group). Also, if you've seen something in my photostream that you think I should've posted here but didn't, let me know! Last year's winners are here, and the current entries (my competition) are posted here.
