    Ooh I feel all warm and fuzzy
    I never realised everyone thought so much of my portraits.
    I am actually the worst critique for my work lol. But then again, I guess we all are.
    Thank you all, for the congrats

    Very well deserved indeed. Congrats. You're the one that inspired me to order a 50mm f1.8 lens along with my DSLR last week.

    Around our parts tooting means to pass a bit of gas.

    But I suppose if you mean toot your own horn, then yes, by all means do so and congratulations!

    Tooting, trumping, sounds like a faculty meeting too me, all hot air.
    Congratulations on both the honor and the shots, they're both fantastic.

    Heck I'd been doing more then a little toot. I'd have been shouting from the highest place available. Wonderful recognition for a truly gifted photographer. Congrats Ali!!
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??
