Some News & a Big “Thank You” to All

Post by minniev » Sun Jul 29, 2018 3:13 pm

We only have one statewide juried photo competition in photo-challenged Mississippi. It is sponsored by the Wildlife Federation and covers several categories and levels of photography. I’ve always participated in it, and some years have done well. I just learned that two of my images have advanced to this year’s final competition in the pro division. Overall winner to be announced next weekend. https://mswildlife.org/events/outdoor-p ... y-contest/. Two more of my shots placed in other divisions. I have had a request to purchase the two winning images for publication in a state outdoor magazine.

So, THANK YOU to all of you who critiqued these images and helped me see ways to improve them before they were submitted. It’s your recognition too. And a reminder of how valuable feedback from fellow photographers can be.

Thanks, I don’t know if there is anything much to aspire to around here, but I’m happy with this. That of the image set I submitted the ones chosen were the ones you guys had helped me with is a victory for us all.
