"Through My Eyes" Contest: Pettus Bridge Wins Again

This magnificent picture of the Pettus Bridge and Water Avenue buildings along the river at sunset won first place in the recent Arts Revive photography contest.
Kathy Price won $100 and a blue ribbon for her composition with the "Through My Eyes...Selma's Historic Architecture" theme. Photos had to include a view of all or some part of one of Selma's historic buildings. The photographs were displayed at Riverfront Market Day last weekend.

Last year's winner can be viewed HERE.
The 2007 theme was the river, and the blue ribbon picture featured a portion of the Pettus Bridge. Another bridge photo won third place this year while the St. Paul's Episcopal Church tower won second.

To see more winning photos, go to this article on The Selma Times-Journal website.
Note the gargoyle in the other blue-ribbon photo. It won the junior division and was entered by my young neighbor, Elizabeth Wilson.

Congratulations to all!

The winner did have a prize winning photo and she won. Nice work there and the others in the story are striking as well.

Thanks for your comment, Abe. You own a couple of expert eyes. This photo would make a beautiful painting as well.

The Pettus Bridge certainly is big draw for artistic eyes! The photo is great as is last year's...quite different from one another but equally good!

What a beautiful photo! I agree that would be an excellent painting.

Our bridge is probably the most photographed structure in town, a big favorite of tourists and photographers.

Tanya, I did enter a photo this year, the first photo I have ever entered in a contest. Didn't place, but it was fun, and I expect to enter next year as well. I'm sure there are lots more photographers around here who need to lend their "eye" too. As they say, "the more, the merrier!"
