I am humbled and happy by the fact that I have received my 2nd Daily Deviation. Mrs-Durden (https://www.deviantart.com/mrs-durden) - Thank you for the feature!!!
PhotoShoot Awards (Nude 2014)
After much deliberation (mainly with myself), I decided to try and send some of my pictures to the PhotoShoot Awards (Nude 2014). To be honest, considering the photographers that participated last year, I didn't think I had a chance. Some of the participating photographers have profiles on DeviantArt and I follow and admire their work. A couple of days ago, I received an e-mail from the organizers saying that one of my pictures is a finalist, and three others were given a merit in the Academic Nude category. I am ecstatic and humbled. The following pictures received a merit:
Wow! To be honest, I can't really believe it. When I read such entries from others, I always wondered what are they doing correctly that I'm doing wrong. The answer, I think, is nothing. I try to keep on doing what I did in the past and get better at it. So, thank you all for the support. I hope to continue taking photographs that you and I like. :thumb340543035::thumb359672654::thumb329318598: :thumb275620751::thumb366786934::thumb366063856::thumb354643020: :thumb365470393::thumb362043803::thumb361893294:
Overwhelmed in a good way...I didn't think I will ever be in that position but I have finally reached it. I have much more to do than I have time for (nothing new there), but now I am also behind on my messages on the site. Thank you all for the :+fav:s and the :+devwatch:es-I really appreciate it and it gives me the fuel and motivation to continue. I will do my best to get back to each one of you and thank you but if I don't- thank you!!!
