    Great news William. Most people on this site know how hard you work to get your images and the strange hours in which you get them. Good to see it paying off.

    Congrats William.

    Just goes to show, there's a difference between what us photographers call a nice image and what those 'muggles'es' think of as pleasant images.

    I get that all the time with my pics too, where my family/friends seem to like what I think are pretty average looking images!

    main thing is that you snagged a deal and hopefully it'll lead to more work/sales/exposure too!

    Thanks , We're pretty stoked , Joel and myself that is

    @ Arthur, Your dead right mate , I was told to find the images, I thought they were that good I deleted the original TIF files , Thank goodness I kept the RAW files from those days , Just had to reprocess as close as I could to the ones that were on our Web Site from where they were picked

    Congratulations William, as you said you never know...everybody has different point of view and you might like some of your photos and they will never be noticed...and then you take some shots without thinking of them as a potential sell and here you go!!!!good work!!!

    Congrats William and Joel!

    You just need to tweak the first one, the horizon is not level..as can be checked by the water on the left (its only out a tad), but it leans down to the right.

    Looking forward to seeing the mug shots with the t-shirts being worn.

    I'll let their designers fix that Rick, They have the full res versions and enough equipment that'd blow you away , Anyway they are to be incorporated into a design so it probably does'nt matter to much, Joel told me that to do the photo shoot he just had to turn up , They have all the studio gear at the Headquarters just up the road at Burleigh Heads , For sure I'll post a mug shot of us , Will be a little while though I'm guessing , Not quite sure of the time lines they run at for production and distrbution , I'll ask Joel tomorrow
