I've shown this photo before in these forums, and perhaps web pics certainly don't do a photo print justice but I really wanted to share this story with some of you guys, as I am really proud of it anyway. The picture below I took like a week after getting my Sony A200. This was a morning shot of the water towers. As I do work for the company, as a plant operator I sent this photo into the main office in case they could find a use for it. I found out today that they've used it. They have two huge 3 ft prints. One they're hanging down here in our plant where I work, and the other I assume will be dispalyed up at our main office. But this saturday evening they're having their 40th Aniversery dinner. This photo is, for lack of a better discription, they're using as their 40th Aniversery photo. Now they've added a title at the bottom that I don't have here because I sent them the edited raw. I'm sure those guys know more about editing and processing photos then I do but it will displayed at the dinner for all to see! All our board members, attending employees, and the mayor of thomasville called today asking about this dinner so I really don't know who all will be there but I'm getting the feeling that it will be a fairly sizeable event and they're showing this photo as they're 40th aniversery picture. No money is involved but thats not why I did it and for me its a big accomplishment. I'm not sure why I felt like I had to post about it, but I wanted to tell someone. I'll have to find out how they processed that picture the way they did. My general manager called and told me that he really liked this picture and that I did a great job on it. Not bad for being lucky I thought. I'm just excited that it was good enough to be taken as seriously as it was. Not a cover shot for a major magazine, but still... a big thing for this very new photographer.
