    So as always a quick summary on some of this months Monthly Challenge Achievements.

    To start with let’s hear it for Tina, who must have drank a whole can of ‘Whooop Ass!’ before submitting her ‘WINTER’ image to the MC. She bagged a massive 7 awards from the total of 10 awards that were given in that category. The most amount of awards given to a single image so far in all of the Monthly Challenges that have taken place. Congrats!

    While we are on the subject of bagging a large amount of awards, a big thumbs up go to Just Ard & Tomavim who both grabbed the top placed images in the categories SHOES & CRACKS respectively, each receiving 5 awards.

    Congratulations are in order for one of our new group members, Martin (4d Photo Images), who in his first monthly challenge, topped the category of ‘JOY’ with 4 awards, just beating Benn Riis’s image into second place which received 3 awards.

    Next up, a ‘Big High 5’ goes to Mister G.C. who can post all of his December MC images to the gallery after receiving at least one award for each of his 5 images that he submitted to all categories.

    Last but not least, well done to the following members who all received at least one award and can proudly hang their images in the Monthly Challenge Gallery

      Bravo, Tina ! you deserve it.
      I also love Old Fashioned Hug, the expression of the lady is really “joy”.

        Thanks Esther. I logged in to make a new blog post and was pleasantly surprised to see this. It’s always good when your peers appreciate your work.

        I really like how the group is coming together. All of the pictures are really impressive and it motivates me to experiment with different styles of photographing things.
