Good news to share with everyone..
LTA just informed me as 1 of the Merit Prize Winners!!
understandably, the event itself may not be a big hoo-hah, the win is not big, neither is it the value of whatever prizes...the win worth alone is just the motivation and encouragement of an individual efforts paying off. i think any photog can relate that first baby steps.
My sincere thanks for the many sharing and exchange from the people hereabouts, without which i could not have improved leaps and bounds over time!
