I dropped off one of my photographs today for the exhibit at the Shaker Lakes Nature Center. I also attended a session of my photography club in which photographs were critiqued from the last two expeditions.
I brought in two photographs. They placed first and second place in the critique session. They had a certain "wow" factor to them. Also good photography techinique. I am very elated right now and eventually will float back down to reality.
Mere luck? I would like to think that it is determination on my part.
