Once a year the Shoot & Share website holds a photo contest. This is open to anyone in the world and you can submit up to 50 images. For the past four-ish years I have participated in this event. This year over 400,000 images was submitted from photographers all over the world, HUGE! They announced the results recently and I thought I would share them with you! Out of the 50 images I submitted TWELVE of them placed in the TOP 10%, and TWO of them were finalist! In the past I have had images place higher than finalist but you know what I'll take it! The amazing thing about contests is its another tool to help push me to continue to keep progressing, Keep pushing myself as an artist. Fine tune my skill its so much fun. I LOVE that in photography there is no finish line, you never stop learning, you never stop growing..
