    I won!!

    Hi all .. some of you from over on the Critique forum will remember that I was working on some submissions for a competition run by a local college of adult education. The theme was "Time". I got a phone call from them on Thursday to tell me that one of my images won the first prize! I was very pleased as I won this comp two years ago.

    For those who haven't seen it, the final version of the winning entry is below. I also win 100 (about $200) which will go toward a nice lens, I think

    Thanks guys for all the helpful critiques which I received at the time.

    Cheers
    Mike

    Well there is no doubt in my mind that this is a winner. Sure glad the judges agreed with me. Use the money wisely. (read for photo equipment)
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Hi Mike, I see you tied into the theme "Time" quite nicely with the subject matter in your image.
    Congratulations on a job well done.
