COMPETITION WINNER...

I'm baa--AAck! I have a million things I need to do today, before my kids wake up so here's to a new me. I am trying to loose this night identity I've developed, and trade it in for an early morning me. In Hawaii I was getting up at 6:00a.m. and getting to bed before 10:00a.m. I got so much accomplished before noon, I felt like a hero. I'm aware this isn't impressive if you translate the time zones, BUT.... it however made me realize if I just got to bed earlier I would wake up early, which would make we want to get to bed earlier. Follow? I'm not a morning person, but I will myself to be better scheduled and better rested.

Anyway, our winner is Jaene Aulava, photo #1. Everyone did so well. It takes a lot to put your work out in front of the whole world and have people throw there opinions at it, anonymous or otherwise. I want to thank everyone who took time to give positive feedback to these photographers. CONGRATS Jaene!

Great job to all the ladies and the beautiful photos! I'm proud of my wife's winning photo, but I think the biggest benefit was the experience gained and the working knowledge applied! We were also fortunate enough to meet some very talented photographers who share the same passions we do about photography!

Thanks Omi for sharing your talents, and for hosting the group shoots! Glad to see that you made it home safely!
