  1. Hi All,
    I can't believe it! I just won my first photo contest! (and $300!) The contest was called "Picturing Songs" where we had to take a photo that captures one of our favorite songs essence.

    My song was "Bad Day" by Daniel Powter

    I was on such a high today :) 


    Quick question...
    Do you get a funny feeling when you click the shutter knowing you nailed a potentially great shot?
