The Huntingdon Valley Camera Club's annual photo scavenger hunt occurred this past Saturday, May 14th. Upon meeting up we discovered our secret location was Peddler's Village just minutes away from New Hope Pennsylvania. I was very excited for this location, as PV is a great spot to visit for a day. They have a variety of fun shops to visit, and great restaurants to eat at. It is all outdoors with beautiful scenery to enjoy along your walk. My favorite shop is Chaddsford Winery. At times I have found myself driving the 40 minutes just to pick up some bottles. Here are a sample of pictures from the day. Check out my Facebook photography page to view more shots of my trip to Peddler's Village.

I have stated before I am part of a local camera club, Huntington Valley Camera Club (meetup.com page). At our recent meeting we had an open competition with a local judge from New York Camera & Video in Bensalem. Out of all the photos entered for color, my photo "Gothic Night" won first place. It then went head to head with 1st place in Monochrome and ended up taking Best in Show for the night. This was my first time placing at a monthly competition and I was very proud of my photo. Below is the photo that won. The only thing you can't see is the fact that I printed it on metallic paper through mpix.com.
Photo Note: This was taken on Liberty Island. The pier was chained off from the public and I just enjoyed how it looked like a pathway to South Manhattan in the background. The dark comical effect was a result of running the multiple exposures through the HDR process in Photomatix Pro.
