i'd already posted this for my friends on the Panasonic forum, but i wanted to share the news with some of my other pals here who may not visit there...

my photo of the bubble(see avatar)just won Photo of the Year at http://www.photographycorner.com !!!



if you aren't familiar with it, it's a pretty good sized forum (9000+ members) that has the usual stuff, plus a regular photo of the month contest. this is their first PotY contest... in addition to braggin' rights, i also snagged over $3,600 worth of cash and prizes!!! i'm still in shock, i figured i'd do well to get an honorable mention, and only in my wildest dreams hoped to place in the top 3!! that photo, which i took just on a whim, has really turned into something special for me!

Amazing outcome for you and your pic
Did I get someting wrong, or was the POTY contest independent from the POTM contests? Maybe thats why I can't find your pic on the POTM winners overview...

Congrats anyway!

yes, the PotY contest was a different contest entirely... if you log onto the site, there's a thread about the PotY that shows all the gory details... http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ad.php?t=53630

Excellent, I have been impressed with that photo ever since I first saw it. Now it gives me something to shoot for. No pun intended. I'm going to order a Raynox DCR-250 soon. I have been impressed with many of photos taken by many of the members here. Always nice to have one of our own win the big one. Congradulations Squril.
