I'M a Winner

Just been notified I have won the motion competition in the Olympus User Magazine which is issued at the end of this month. Got to check out what I can spend my 500 winnings on now.
It feels really good.

Thanks everyone for the congrats. I have ordered a 1.4 tele converter and a remote control RM-1. After my spending spree I was left with just under 1.00. I think the best part is having your worked judged by professionals then coming out on top of some rather good entries from fellow photographers.
Thanks again for the congrats.

Thanks for the congrats guys. I made the magazine in the last issue but you don't know until it has been published so you may still be in with a chance Technician.
