Capture Cincinnati 2008

The Capture Cincinnati photo book was unveiled Wednesday night at Joseph Beth in Norwood. This is the second year for the Capture Cincinnati project. The 2008 contest attracted 31,247 photos. Close to 15,000 people participated by submitting photos or voting at More than 1.7 million votes were cast.

Two of my photos made the book. I was also one of 25 prize winners, this photo of paddlefest won a Peoples Choice award for the Sports and Recreation Chapter.

My other photo, one of Ray and his tongue, is the Pets chapter cover.

Thanks to everyone for their support and taking the time to vote.

Jeffrey Peter explains his process in creating the grand prize winning photo for Capture Cincinnati 2008. He put the leaf and frog on a piece of glass, then used a flash from above.
