Last fall my wife, son, and I went to a small North Carolina mountain town to visit my retired dad and his wife. While there, I snapped this pic of the Carolina Theatre in Spruce Pine, NC.
For the record, the only post work done was a saturation enhancement and the removal of some power lines.
My father's church has an art auction every year (GREAT artists in that area of the world!!), and this year I donated a matted 11x14 copy of the above image. My father just called me to see how difficult it would be to bring 5 more unmatted prints of the same size. Seems that already - before this coming Saturday's auction - people have seen the shot and want to buy copies of it.
One of the potential buyers is the woman who now owns and has renovated the theatre. She has offered a -- well, a very acceptable price for a copy of the image - *VERY* acceptable! I suggested to my dad that I would bring two more prints, but I wouldn't sell them until after the auction. Don't want to saturate the market, ya know?

Oh yeah - I set my minimum price for the matted image at $35 (it is a church auction, after all). But the organizer of the auction, a woman whose work is displayed in the Smithsonian, has set the minimum at $50.
Now, if I could just find a market for my figure work!
