    I was just told that my photo below has won the "Best Lily Photo" prize in the 2008 Neepawa Lily Festival photo contest.



    Neepawa is a mid-sized Manitoban town known as the Lily Capital of the World. So I guess I can brag that I took the best lily photo in the world centre of all things lily. Not bad :)

    This is a small-time contest, but it has given me a big-time boost about how I feel about my photography.

    Thanks everybody for your continuing C&C of my photos, I appreciate it.

    Haha! Thanks much! And you guessed wrong, as I've done more research and was starting to lean the other way. (Plus, I charge in Canadian dollars, so it's going to be even cheaper for ya for as long as the price of oil is "low" :))
