Critical Mass finalists
The list of Photolucida's Critical Mass finalists has been released and I'm very happy to report that I made it! It feels particularly great because I didn't get in last year, and I think that was the hardest rejection to swallow to date (see my mention of it last year it here). Looking back at my 2008 submission I'm now really able to see the weaknesses in the images I chose to submit, and feel as if having that year, along with the feedback I've gotten from some incredible people, made 2009's entry much stronger. Many thanks to the prescreeners, and congratulations to the friends who made the list as well--it's wonderful to see so many familiar names and such talented people on the list, I'm humbled to be alongside them. Good luck on the next round!
