OK so I'm just a bit pleased!!

Hi all,
I mentioned in an earlier thread that I was applying for an LRPS today. I have just got back to my B&B after a nerve racking but successful day.
The judges made some very nice comments so I am chuffed. The prints looked so much better in proper light, mounted and hung together, I actually felt quite proud.
Anybody thinking about doing it, go for it. I have learnt so much and my photography has come on leaps and bounds since I started to work for this.
If anybody is interested in the panel its on my website (link below) although of course the resolution on site is quite low it will give you a flavour.
Thanks for all the good wishes, I am sure they made all the difference.
Shirley

Well done Shirley LRPS! That makes at least two of us here!

There are some good strong images in your panel.

Shirley, you undoubtedly have an eye for a picture - it's a natural talent I'm sure. I was impressed by your portfolio - so well done!

I've not even thought about doing something like this, but you have got me wondering now

Yes Ian go for it - why not? If I can do it, you can.

Thank you to everybody for your comments, I feel very humbled having seen all your photographs.
