Travel Photographer of the Year Awards

Hi all!
I would like to share some great news (though some of you already know… I’m not very good at keeping good news to myself!!!):
Yesterday, I received an email telling me that my photo “Sandforest” is one of the five winners of the Travel Photographer of the Year “First Shot” category. The first shot category is for amateur photographers.

I’m so excited!

Here’s the link to the TPOY website

And here’s the photo that won:

So all you amateur photographers – take a risk and enter some online photography competitions – you’ve gotta be in it to win it!!!

Homepage Layout Suggestions

There is a Discussion Thread where anyone can make a suggestion for the eight images on the homepage. The difficulty is that you have to write the code of each image for it to work and it’s easy to get it wrong ~ and it’s hard to picture all your suggestions together unless you look at them!…

So this is going to be the place where I put together my suggestions before I put them in the thread.

Selected homepage layouts:

Layouts I’m working on…

One month on RB

Wow, what a month it’s been!…

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you who have shown your appreciation for my photography, artwork and writing by commenting, favouriting and featuring it!! I have been absolutely floored by the incredible response I’ve received.

As many of you know, I only started taking photos with intention (ie not happy snaps) last year, so I’m really, really new to this whole ‘world’ of photography. All of the constructive criticism I received from you ADPOTDers has been invaluable, and the encouragement I’ve had from all the incredible comments I’ve recieved both there and on here have been amazing. I really just want to say thanks.

Thanks to all of you who have added me to your watchlist – I am both humbled and excited that you like my wo

RB Featured Art page!

I haven’t written a journal entry yet, so I just thought I’d give it a go…
…and share my excitement that one of my images is on the RB Featured Art page!!

I can’t figure out who’s responsible… so this is me sending a message out into the ether (or at least to those who like my photos!) to pass on my thanks to whoever “Featured” is!!!
