It's always great to win things isn't it - I know, I know, it's the taking part that counts and all that. Well, of course, it is, but it's always nice to win as well. So, how delighted was I when I got a call out of the blue recently from the SWPP to advise that I had won their recent "Beautiful Brides" competition from hundreds of entries from photographers worldwide. Now, before you start looking at my profile pic to see how much of a "beautiful bride" I am...it's a photography competition. Not that I'm saying that the brides in these images aren't beautiful, they all are, but the competition isn't based on how beautiful the bride was, more so the impact, lighting, composition etc of the picture.
And then there was the bonus...upon checking the SWPP's website to see my winning entry in all it's glory, well,knock me down with a feather, if I only hadn't come third in the competition as well. My prize, a full years free membership to SWPP and a few bragging rights :-)
