Year Of Firsts

Due to some encouragement through people I’ve met on here (which I am now lucky enough to call mates) and my family and friends, this year saw me enter a few competitions (something I’ve never had the confidence in doing before).

The latest being the International Loupe Awards. I didn’t tell anyone I was entering (apart from Mum) as I wasn’t that confident going in, but last week got the results and out of the 8 images I entered 5 got awards (I’m pretty stocked with that as I wasn’t expecting anything).

Like other peoples stories I’ve read about the judging my scores varied in each image (one in particular ranged from 87 from one judge to 60 from another judge, it’s all down to personal choice I guess) but I’m not complaining at all..

So here are the images that I’ve entered into various comps over this year..

2012 Loupe Awards

So again I would like to thank those who have encouraged me to get out there and try (what have you got to lose right) :o)
