"World in Motion" - A Winning Image | Art Prints

Last Tuesday night, during a weekly podcast I watch, I received some fabulous news.

An image that I entered in a contest of a photography group I'm a member of, won!

Every month we have a contest on a specific topic or theme. In January there were two: "World in Motion" & "Minimalism". For the longest time I was mulling over how I could take an interesting image for either of these. Then on the morning of the last day of the contest, a light bulb went on. We have a vintage globe that I could spin and take a shot of - a very literal interpretation of "World in Motion". I didn't know if I could make it work, but it turned out so much better than I had ever imagined.

From the moment I posted this picture, my peers were waxing lyrical about it - I was super thrilled about all the encouraging feedback! 

Even if I had not won the contest, the kind praise from my fellow photographers would have been reward enough. 

Now after the contest my image adorns the Facebook cover photo of our group until the next contest is won.

"Wold in Motion" (amongst others) is for sale in my new Art Prints Shop as quality photo prints, canvases and metal prints. If you are interested you can find more information here:!shop/cjxf
