300 Smiles

posted on 8th of may, 2009

One of the many things I enjoy about dreamstime is the diversity of all the people involved here
This is my 300th image accepted at dreamstime.

And even though some people upload that many in one month and it took me almost two years, some how we all fit in.

Every accepted photo has given my a big smile, inspiration and some healing from some that were rejected.

In some ways it seems like a long time since the first photo was accepted.

But in others it seems like it went by very quickly.

I have met some very friendly caring people here with one heck of a lot of talent and have learned a great deal from them and others that shared their knowledge of photography.

So please join my in my own little celebration of a small goal being met....

Two important things I have discovered in doing this.

One is that the isolation must be flawless, so time needs to be taken to make sure every edge is perfect.

And the background should be perfect in focus and in exposure is where it needs to be.

Of course after doing this it is as if I was walking through a house...
