Traghetto Oars

Traghetto Oars, Venice Italy

Here are some oars stacked against the wall at the Pescheria-Santa Sofia traghetto crossing in Venice, Italy.  I entered this image in the Northern Virginia Photographic Society monthly competition.  This was a “themed” competition with the theme being “Abandoned and Discarded”.  Out of 26 images entered in Class 3, this image took Honorable Mention (ribbons were given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, with 4 Honorable Mentions).  The Judge liked the diagonals of the oars and the fact that the vertical lines were indeed vertical.  The judge did mention that the image was cropped a little too close to the oars along the bottom.  So watch those edges when you crop!

Class 3 is defined as “Any Club member who has demonstrated photographic skills at levels of consistently high quality and creativity or is a working professional photographer”.  This is the top class out of three classes for NVPS competitors.
