I am a bit dumbstruck. :footinmou
I found out today That I won the grand/first prize for a photography competition. I won $550 and all the marketing and media will feature my image as representative of the trade show.:eek: My image will be on the tickets and on the cover of the magazine. :eek: :eek: Holy Crap!
This is the competition I won:

I had a little "happy"cry too when I found out. I had a bit of a crummy day today so it was nice to come home to a beautiful rainbow at the end of a stormy day. :)

You have many winning shots here and we were never blowing smoke up your ... aperture when we said they were good ... so I'm not surprized at all. Well done!!!

Wow, I miss a day on the forum and Bambi gets a new home and you win a big contest. Maybe I should stay away more often ;)

Congrats and, honestly, I'm surprised you haven't won anything else yet. You always share wonderful images so it was really a matter of "when" and not "if". Congrats again and enjoy basking in the sunshine. You deserve every bit of it! :1st::1st:

I got the package in the mail yesterday with "Urban Forest" printed on all the entry tickets (with photo credits), and on the cover of the magazine trade show guide as well as the $$ for winning. They sent a bunch of copies for a portfolio Still kind of hard to believe. :o
Now to get some time off (just an afternoon) from my practicum to go to the show..... :fingerscr A bit of a conflict but I'm hoping they will understand. :)
