Third Place
My first contest submission is a house in our subdivision, nothing special about the photo, but I liked the trees in the background and the long winter shadows.  The bright sunlight brought out the colors in the brick, and the smoke from the back of the house reveals the single digit temperatures that day.  Shot with my 1955 C-3 brick on drugstore brand 200 speed film, f16 at 1/300sec.

My second choice submission is of my daughter by the nativity scene in front of our church.  Also taken with my C-3, but I believe overexposed at f8 and 1/100sec.  I like the effect of her hair blowing in the wind.  I am a rank beginner, still learning to take photos!
