    A little tiny win but it felt good.

    I have just completes a beginner's camera course at my camera club and, at the last class,we had to bring one photo we had taken. They were put up for display and voted on and I won!!. My prize was to have my photo matted and framed. Just thought I would share as,although I learned a lot in the course, I have learned even more from here...so thank you to all the people who take the time to help and advise us newbies

    This is my photo.

    Congratulations. You may have learnt from your club and from AP, but the very reason you won, is because YOU took on board all the information and advice, and YOU worked at improving your photographic skills. So thank you for absorbing the information, and using it positively. We can put all the information in the world in front of people, but those, like yourself, who want to use it, are the winners. Well done on your club win, you deserved it!
