My photo was selected as a Finalist in the Annual Spring Photography Contest staged by Photographer’s Forum Magazine. Out of about 10,000 entries (if I remember correctly) my photograph was chosen as one of 1,500 finalists. My entry didn’t get beyond that level in the judging process but was published in the magazine’s Best of Photography 2016 book. I received a nifty certificate proclaiming my achievement – I also got to this level in the 2015 contest. Here’s my entry (below) and here’s a link to the story behind the photo. In the actual entry and in future copies of this photo I have cropped out the rocks and trees seen on the left-hand side.
Another nifty certificate
