Have you been to CurrentPhotographer.com? I discovered it recently (through another photographer friend, Scott Wyden) and it’s a great resource showcasing articles about various items related to photography. They also share information about photo contests you can enter.
This February, they held their own contest, with the theme “Make the Ordinary Extraordinary.” I didn’t find out about it till almost the last day so I entered super late.
Imagine my absolute surprise and elation when I found out yesterday that I won first place among over 200 entries! You’ve seen the above image before – it was one of my absolute favorites from 2010. In fact, I said that if I had to choose one image as my favorite, it would be this one. I took it last summer, on a walk around my neighborhood. I was walking by a tree and the leaves and sun caught my eye. (Or, more accurately, shone in my eye!)
Thank you so much to the judges for picking my photo and to CurrentPhotographer.com for hosting the contest! I can’t wait to get my prizes!
