      I posted this image (“Fishing at Sunrise”) in the Shark Tank on September 6th this year, the Light Stalking Community selected it as a member pick of the week and the Pick of the Week for September 9th. The community encouragement led to my entering it in the Lifestyle category of the annual Down East Magazine reader photo contest (”Down East” is a well read Maine magazine). There were 3 categories, 3 winners in each – and over 1200 entries. The Judge panel selected my image for 2nd place. I was very excited-especially when some of the professionals told me how difficult it is to win a Down East contest. All 9  winning images, are published in the current (December) issue.  I was surprised again when an evening TV news ”magazine” program interviewed the magazine’s editor-in-chief about the contest. Only 3 images were shown in the program – mine was one of them and included a wonderful narration as well. Had it not been for the Light Stalking community response and the confidence you gave me, I doubt I would have even considered entering the contest.     Thank you!  Pat
