Maybe the wrong Forum, but had to share in my happiness. I purchased my 5100 back in Oct and got back into photography now that I am retired. So with a lot of reading, and practicing and learning, and help here at Nikonians I entered 3 photos in the Florida State Fair. I honestly did not think I would win anything BUT to my surprise I did.
So what you all have taught me:
The person taking the pictures ability for composition, exposure, focus etc, out weighs the expense of the equipment you use. Practice, practice, and practice.
Post production is a must for that final touch.
I thank you all and wish to share my award with all of you. You can go to the critique section and see how the beginning shot became the ribbon shot. Again THANKS, this is the first time in my life I ever won anything. Terrible pic of me, but.............
