Congrats,
That's a great shot, one to be proud of. It has always bothered me though when they put that annoying address label over the cover art. I wish they would put it on the back, but then they might be covering up precious advertising dollars.

I Know!! How dare they cover up my work with an address label. Live and learn, I guess.

Next time I'll frame the shot differently so that there is room for the label.

Thanks again, everyone, for all of your help.

Thanks. Those new Panasonic Lumix cameras are pretty great. All I did was stand out in the mosquitos for a couple of hours and press the shutter button!

Congratulations. It's a great shot, and deserves to be on the cover!

Hey Backyarder, nice shot... congrats also on getting the cover.... thats awsome!!!!

How did you go about getting that cover?? did you just submit copies of your pics to different magazines?? Im heading down to the Everglades and am bringing the cam along and hopefully using up two i gig cards, a 512 and a 64mb also and getting some pretty good shots (i hope)... anyway, should i make a protfolio of the good ones and just send them out??

thanks!

Hi Zack. I'm a freelance writer (more than a photographer). It helps a lot if you can submit an article and tie in a cover shot. I'm sure the only photos I will ever be able to sell are ones that go along with articles I write.

On the other hand, I can go out and have fun with my camera and then try to write an article that can use a good picture I end up with.

I do know that a lot of magazine websites have information about their photo guidelines and getting a copy of the Photographer's Market (from the library or bookstore) will tell you how to submit your pics for consideration.

Wish I could be more help but I think ending up on the cover was more being in the right place at the right time than anything else. I wrote an article about hummingbirds that arrived right after the hurricanes and everyone in Florida was in desperate need of a feel-good story after all the storm damage. It's been four months and a lot of houses still don't have roofs down here!

Gongratulations on a great shot. It must be quite a thrill. I hope some day to have my work published as well. Until then....

Now is this shot at its original resolution, or did you manage to successfully interpolate it? It looks good in your scan.

Great work!

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada
