Nice going my friend!

I think we are truly fortunate that cameras were invented. :clap:

Thank you all, it certainly surprised me. Although I'm blowing my own trumpet here,this was only my first season with the senior/advanced photographers, some of whom have been taking photos most of their lives and I will have been doing photography for just three years come April.

I feel I've really achieved something a bit special and much of it is down to you guys with your input and helping me select what pics to enter. So a BIG THANK YOU to everyone here! :D

We just held our final print merit competition tonight. No prizes for this one, I'm afraid but my scores weren't too bad either. :D

Penfold, your stuff is lovely! You're really talented at skies - something I'm thoroughly useless with. Maybe we ought to start a photography tips and tricks thread...? :D Either way, well done!

Thanks all. I have just applied for a photographic job going into Worthing Hospital Maternity Ward and taking photos of newborn babies with there mummies (and daddies, presumably). It's only part time but one that will fit in with the hours I do in the casino. Hopefully I will get it and be able to take the first steps towards turning professional later this year, giving up the casino entirely. :handgestures-fingerscrossed: :D

Very good luck with that, Penners! It's a gamble, but you know all about those. ;)

Best of luck Penners. Presumably you will need to be CRB checked by the hospital first.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
