My 1st Photography Competition

I don't normally "toot" my own horn, but I wanted to share some exciting news about my first involvement with  an organized photography competition.  The contest was put on by the Tacoma Photographic Society, of which I am a new member.  It's an open competition that's being exhibited at the Spring Fair in Puyallup, Washington.  The Fair ends this Sunday.  There where approximately 180 entries in the adult competition.  The major awards that were given out included 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, around 15 Honorable Mention, and Four different Merit Awards.  I submitted eight photos, and was so please to win 5 awards (Three Honorable Mention, and two Merit awards)  The two Judges Merit Awards really meant a lot to me.  I guess the competition sort of validated that my work is good enough to enter more competitions.

I also want to thank all of you for following and supporting my work, with your wonderful comments and encouragement!

Hope you enjoy my entries!
