    I also am 'newly' certified, as of last summer, and do not believe the judges look at the certification images in the same way as competition images. I believe that the judges do look for images that show the maker has a grasp on the basis that a professional photographer would be expected to have to considered a professional- composition, lighting (and when I say that I mean being able to control the lighting situation and finding or creating the right light for the situation), posing, etc.

    I have to agree with Don- my clients buy what I show them which includes competition images - and my competition work is client work.

    I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

    Thanks Jackie. Another question though. When you were waiting to hear back from the judges on your certification images, about how long did it take? The deadline for image submission was the 8th of Feb., and I haven't heard anything yet - is it too soon to expect to hear anything?

    Default Judging ... when ?

    Hi Angela;

    February 8th was only the deadline for all to be uploaded. The actual judging is later this month I believe.
