Entered this in the Utah State Fair and won a red ribbon in the Commercial and Industrial category:

It's a crop of the backside of a huge container ship on the Savannah river. In the original, there's a sailor looking over the side of the ship:

I entered a corrected (straightened and bumped up exposure) version of this in the county fair and got shut out. So I focused on the containersfor the state fair.

I'd have to say that the first image is more compelling. The containers appear to go on forever, it gives a much bigger feeling. The boat gives boundaries, which takes away from the impact of the image.

"Warhol" is the first word that comes to mind. Anyone else getting that vibe?
