    *sighs* well... I tried!

    This afternoon I got a phone call from The Weather Channel Australia, to let me know that I didn't make the top 12 I have to admit I'm a little upset, BUT! I made the top 30 out of over 800 photos, so, I'm still quite proud of myself. Another friend of mine also didn't make it, and his photo ( in my opinion) was magnificent! It will be interesting to see who made it into top12!
    Happy to take all constructive Critique, please don't rework or edit my photos. Thanks!

    Canon 6D, 2 Canon 50D's gripped, Canon 1000D, Canon 70-200 F2.8 ( non IS),Canon 70-200 2.8, Canon 24-70 2.8, Sigma 85 1.4, Canon 50mm F1.8.. yongnuo speedlights and triggers, and manfrotto tripods.

    Sorry to hear this Kirsty, but top 30 really is something to be proud of.

    I think the judges must have their eyes closed or there must have been some pretty amazing photos to beat yours...keep trying!

    I think you have done very well.
    You should be proud of what you have achieved.

    Top 30 is pretty darn good Kirsty. I'd be happy with that.
    I recently seen a competition at the local show, were there was some real good shots (Technically and visually) and what won the comp could have been taken by a 5 year old with a 2 mp mobile phone.
    You just don't know what judges are looking for.

    But all us here know that you are a winner, and that is all that matters.

    Well done on getting as far as you did Kirsty. There is always next year to enter again.

    Top 30 is an excellent achievement . Remember that they have to choose the photos for variety too, as it is a calendar, so sometimes you will miss out simply because there is a similar shot to yours that they liked better, or fitted the format of the product a bit better.

    Thanks guys! I'm happy with the top 30 spot, I wasn't actually expecting to get that far lol. I've had a chat with a couple of friends ,also entrants in the comp, and both not in top 12.... (I can't for the life of me figure out WHY though!!! One guy is a storm chaser, entered a photo of a GORGEOUS lightning strike, it's got everything in there, but wasn't chosen... ) anyway, what we reckon is, my storm shot is a pano... probably too wide to fit on a standard calender page ... you wouldn't see details.. ... It's all good, I know for next year not to enter a pano! lol

    Be happy for what you did achieve, rather than disappointed at what you didn't achieve (glass half full)

    Awesome job to get that far
