Winner of "Best Exterior"

I just found out that my image in the Y/OUR Denver online exhibition was just featured in a recent article, "Y/OUR Denver Photography Exhibit Shows Beauty of Mile High Architecture", in Westword (Denver's independent news magazine). In addition, my "Breaking a Bride" image of the Research Bridge building at the former University of Colorado Health Sciences Center on Colorado Blvd and 9th Ave won "Best Exterior" in this juried exhibition! 

 Here is the article section verbatim about my contribution:

"Through the years, the competition has documented a changing Denver. Some buildings that were photographed for a specific contest may not be there by the time the exhibition is mounted, as was the case with Mark Stein's "Breaking a Bridge," which won Best Exterior this year. 'There is a lot of construction and change that has been occurring," says Johnston. "The image by Mark Stein is of the old University of Colorado Health Sciences Center that doesn't exist anymore. And so you're seeing pockets of the city that have holding structures that are not there anymore, but I think that's just part of the growing pains that the city is in. That's also the nice thing about the exhibition: getting people to sit, to look and think.'"
