Since joining RB in April 2009, I have had a lot of fun uploading more than 200 images, searching through old slides, being a little creative and being inspired to shoot more. I have entered challenges all over the place, won one once (with a meagre 3 vote), and have been in the top ten several times. What I like best, though, is the feedback. Years ago I did a bit of photojournalism, story and pics for magazines like Geo Australia, but there was never any feedback on my work. Its not so much praise that I am looking for, though anything that boosts the ego can’t be bad for you, it is knowing what other people like. And the shots you like are often not what I expected would be popular, or are not my favourites. I really appreciate all the comments, have no secrets and are happy to reply. Thanks everyone for your interest and support.
