Amateur Photographer of the Year 2009

The results are finally out for the final round in the Amateur Photographer of the Year 2009 competition! I started this competition in the third round when I realised that it was possible to email submissions. I managed to miss out on one round due to my own ineptitude in forgetting to name the image file correctly. Despite this I’ve managed to get five of the seven entries published and the other two awarded points bringing my entry to an overall 6th place for my first attempt at this competition!

Congratulations to all those who were placed – there have been some super photographs entered.

I have to say that I’m equally surprised and pleased to have managed this at my first try. Here’s my entry for Round 10.
