    .... And joined the Wyoming PPA. I'm entering 6 photos in the state print competition. I'm fully prepared to be torn apart by the judges but I'm still excited. I'll use this year to gauge my current level compared to my goals and hopefully wppa will provide learning opportunity.

    I guess I'm going to fall over dead because I had one image make it to the top 16.... Not sure why they do top 16... Seems like an odd number to use but whatever.

    That's a good goal. But I wouldn't put too much stock in others opinions of your visions, as long as your work is accurate to your personal goal for each piece, you won.

    Putting your work up for criticism is a frightening thing to do. Well done - and well done for being selected for the top 16.
