Shocked To Win the Dreamstime Assignment

posted on 8th of may, 2013

I like participating in the DT Assignments, it challenges you to do photography outside of your usual comfort zone and I think it's a great way to gain exposure because your accepted images become part of a unique collection.

In past assignments I had images that I thought were much stronger but would rank low in the final results. So it was a big surprise to have won the Spring Cleaning assignment. I was content to have an accepted image within the collection as I didn't think my image was much of a contender compared to many of the other entries. I did try to do something a little unique beyond generic cleaning but I will probably drive myself crazy trying to analyze the voting. :-)

Either way, I must thank the DT community for taking notice, I appreciate it very much. I guess it just goes to show, you should always keep trying because you never know what the overall consensus may be for a particular image you may not consider strong.

Like I said, I've always enjoyed being forced to do something beyond what I normally do so I've always felt like a winner for participating and having images selected.

Thanks, everyone!

About me

My greatest passion is landscape and fine art photography. However, stock does provide a challenge in itself. I enjoy coming up with new ideas and concepts and learning new techniques. In the end, each compliments the other. The things you learn from one can apply for another and you grow with the craft. I have over 30 years experience with different kinds of art and freelance endeavors and have yet to become tired or bored with finding new ways to exercise the creative side of me. Thank you for visiting my profile and I hope your time here will be a reward in itself. I am located in Wisconsin... [Read more]
