Award Shortlist   


By Rachel99
HI everyone. Still not getting onto the site very often - just too much work at the moment.
I am in a state of some excitement! Last weekend was our village autumn show - all the usual suspects - flowers, produce, vegetables shaped like thingies ... and photographs. So my partner and I decided to enter a couple of classes each and this shot won a 1st in the flower section!! I was over the moon. My partner got a 1st in the night scene class and overall we got joint 3rd and won 1.50 each!! Tickled pink we were Smile
Thanks for all kind comments on previous uploads - without such encouragement I doubt I would have had the nerve to even enter the competition.
