    Hello Mike:

    Last week, one of my photos won the Photograph of the year at the Teaneck Camera Club of New Jersey, see attached. I thought you’d appreciate seeing it since it was shot at your Unique Photo Marco Boot Camp a few months ago.

    The Nautilus shell you provided was so beautiful and inspiring; what a fun experience. The question at the end was “to crop or not to crop.” I shot the full shell, filled in the missing piece and then ended up cropping as you can see… it was more effective as a close up.

    Thank you and I appreciated learning at your workshop.

    Enjoy!!! Elizabeth Shane

      Elizabeth, I do get a lot of photographers that shot that nautilus shell in my workshop email me saying they won a competition with that shell. It’s a great subject. Glad you had some success with it.
