Jessica,
It is easy for me to say this, but I am not so sure you didnt do well. Think about it like this.....You took the time to attempt to grow personally in your craft. Some things you learned right away in the prep of the image, some you learn in the score, and some things will dawn on you two years from now. I know the gola is to breka 80, but you got very close on these.

Way to go Jessica, and I second Jeff. He just said the same thing to me that Keith Howe told me about my images when I entered Nationals last year. And I didn't merit any, but got scores in the Above Average category, just as you did. Can't make it for Nationals this year, but intend to next year, and now that I know I can hit the above average category, my goal will be to merit with them. So, just look at it like that. Next time out is a whole new day, and it will bring the scores that we are hoping for.

Take care,
Angela

Thanks, everybody for your kind words!

I have to keep reminding myself that for my second print competition, I can't be too disappointed. I am a bit of an over-achiever, though...so it's hard for me to see those scores just below a merit. :(
