Top 10 Photo in the Looking Down Challenge on Gurushots

Yesterday I had asked my husband if I could take a few new portraits of him. He said..."why sure"!!! So... we set up the studio lighting and backdrop in our living room and I grabbed my camera and we sat down for a little Sunday afternoon photo shoot.

I then entered one of the photos in a Challenge on Gurushots titled "Looking Down".  To my surprise... I finished in 7th place overall with the photo! Needless to say I was more than pleased....:)

Top Photo Winner!!! Magazine Challenge on Gurushots

I have some very exciting news!

The other day I made a post on my Facebook about placing in the Top 20 positions in a challenge and having my image printed in Photography Week Magazine.

Well.. there have been some changes.  I had a photo that finished 2nd overall with the highest votes.... almost winning Top Photo in the challenge.   Turns out that the top photo had previously won a challenge and there was a glitch in the system and he was able to enter it into that challenge.  That is not only not allowed but it should never have happened.   After 3 days... the issue has been corrected and I now have the Top Photo Winner for that challenge!!!

There were nearly 70,000 photographers who participated in the challenge and I had the most voted on photo ( approx 280,000 photos).  Now my photo is retired and I have the win.

Stand Up Squirrel

This morning on my walk with my camera and my cat Simon I came on this this really noisy squirrel.  I think he was wanting to cross the road and maybe he was sizing me up? LOL

He never did cross the road and he retreated back to the tree. Nonetheless...I thanked him for letting me take a few photos of him..:)

Half Moon

This morning was a very foggy  morning here in Florida. I started off taking some photos of fog but then I looked up in the sky and saw this gorgeous half moon and decided it was a better subject to photograph.
