Last month I entered the Better Digital Camera Magazine’s ‘Your Best Digital Pics 2012’ online photography competition.  I heard about the competition just hours before the closing time for entries, and so quickly rushed in a handful of photos at random for a little fun, to see what would happen.  I was very pleasantly surprised to discover the results – 7 out of the 10 photos I entered received Bronze Awards!  This was the first photography competition I have been a part of, and it has inspired me to try again.  Next time, with much more preparation and hopefully even better results.  I love receiving feedback on my work, both from fellow photographers and clients, as it can be so encouraging and an excellent way to learn.  And I don’t ever want to stop learning.  M x
