Congrats Noelle! You are an inspiration.

Nice images Noelle, sorry I missed the original post. You did an awesome job with the anguished solitude. It made me look for a very long pause as I was immediately taken by the "age" of the print. The iris is very, very pretty-love the way you created the backdrop.
Looking forward to more from you...

Thank you so much! I have been inspired by soooo many people so it's really nice to hear that I may have inspired someone else.
I have learned so much from this competition and it has also helped me to learn new skills in PS and to go out and look for new and interesting subjects to photograph.
I am working on a couple more for nationals and then regionals in September. I have alot of work ahead of me.

Wow, congrats to both of you!

Steven, I feel the same way! Your images were well deserving of the awards they received. My favorite was your Social image of the young lady. The only problem I will have now is living up to my first time out, I have raised the bar very high for myself. This is going to keep me on my toes.
You did a wonderful job with the convention and it was so nice the way you thanked your wife for helping you. I always tell my friends in the business that I need a wife! LOL

Noelle love your work!!
The convention was a huge amount of work ,but it was a great team effort so I cannot take all the credit,we will be back at Bally's again next year
This Saturday my sons wedding and then off to MARS class in Cape May Sunday
Not sure if my feet have touched the ground yet and with the wedding & MARS not sure if I will be back down to earth for a while!!

Steven, enjoy the wedding and Mars!
