I’ve just recently started this page and think we should kick it off with a good start.
Recently Photographers Connection had their weekly themed photo challenge. The theme was “Clocks”.
So, looking through my photos I stumbled onto this picture.
This was taken during some holiday weekend at a counter with a glass cased clock. I used a Canon T1i and a 50mm lens with the reverse macro technique! (It turned out AWESOME!)
With some quick colour enhancements I was really happy with the final result.
I found the photo and quickly uploaded it to the submissions for the contest. (which had some REALLY good photos entered as well).
Check them out here: http://photographersconnection.com/top-10-fan-photos-of-the-week-week-11/
The next day I got a message from my wife saying I won. “Won what?” I asked. “The cover photo!” she says! Here look!
I was absolutely speechless. What a way to start the week.
With a fan base of 20,000+ on Facebook and I have a cover photo. I’d say we are off to a good start!
