Never ever

I never win anything.  Never.  Never, ever.

But with this photo…

… I was the very first winner of the RAW Photos Contest, courtesy of Crazy With a Side of Awesome Sauce and The Suniverse

Grab your camera, take some great shots, and get ready for the next contest, coming in September.

    I so love that photo. I think it's perfect that you won.

    Way to go on promoting too.

  2. DEFINITELY a winning photo.

    The premise of the contest is great; Photoshop and other photo editing programs are cool, but there's something special about seeing photos that are untouched.

    I still love the photo that you entered…it just radiated happiness.

    With that kid, it's tough to get a shot that isn't special. She is just such a little bundle of magic.
    Thank you. :)

  5. I love that shot. So much. It's absolutely delicious.

    I still get a huge smiley feeling when I see that photo. You deserved that win, even amid such amazing competition. Such a great photo.

    what a GREAT picture!!! I have yet to get a "great" shot like that with my new DSLR. And I NEVER edit because I don't have any software. Maybe I need to play with the camera some!

    Beautiful! Two of my favorite things: little girls, and water.

    (Is that weird? That's not weird. I love both of those things!)

    You know you can also link that pic up in tara's (sticky fingers) weekly gallery. This week's prompt was a picture you are most proud of.

    Thank you!

    Thanks, Brandy. :)

    It worked!
    The problem appears to be the mobile plug-in. Whenever someone comments from a mobile device, the comment gets gobbled up. Craig's going to try to fix it tonight. :)

    Thank you for the compliment on the photo. It is one of my absolute favorites.

    Thank you, Katie!

    Want to know what I do to get great shots?

    Do you have a pen and paper? Get ready to write this down…

    I take no fewer than 576,203,744 photos and I usually get one or two that I like. ;)

    Thank you, my beautiful friend.
    Nothing about you is weird. Eccentric, but not weird. ;)

    Thank you so much, Holly! :)

    Thanks, Susie. I linked up this morning. :)

  25. Nichole inthesesmallmoments.com

    Here's what I do: I take elevnty bajillion photos and hope that I get some that I like. Now that's technique!
    I got lucky with this one. :)

    Your welcome. The gallery followers do look at many of the other entries so it does head more people to your blog and sometimes you get new readers as well.

    It worked! Craig thinks he knows how to fix it and will look at it tonight.
    Thank you for the compliment on the photo. :)
