Oh Gwen!

I just saw this on the "Creating Keepsakes" website under "calls for submissions"

Call for stellar photos
Have you ever taken a photo where, you say to yourself, "This is such an amazing photo, I could win an award!" Creating Keepsakes is looking for stellar photos to use in one of our upcoming publications. Send your low-res photo, 500K maximum, to [email]editorial@creatingkeepsakes.com[/email] with "Stellar Photos" in the subject line.

Definitely agree with everyone else- you should try it Gwen! When FB still showed pictures that I commented on on my friend's newsfeed sidebar, I had so many of my friends ask me who Gwen was and if they could get you to take pictures of their kids too. (Unfortunately none live near you, though one travels near you about twice a year.)

well, you have to let me know which one to enter ... I have too many to choose from. if you have a Flickr account, add me as a friend so you can see them all. Wink

I really don't know which one I'd pick. but I'm so flattered that you'd think of me!

Please do enter! It's the least you could do! You take some amazing shots...and they are unexpected too, which I think would help you win. By "unexpected" I mean unusual.....things people don't think of photographing, yet I love the results.

I love the confidence you have in me. My "problem" is that I always enter the photos that *I* love into contests, and they never win. I think I'm looking with the wrong eye. Wink

I'm going to start a photo thread when I'm all done gathering photos, but that's for something else that I need help with. Wink

If you want to peek at my photostream, here's the link - http://www.flickr.com/photos/coolmama72/ But MOST of my photos are marked for friends and family only. I'm happy to add more friends though, as I love showing off my photos. I just don't want perverts looking at my kids so I don't make them public.

YES! That's a great choice. We all loved watching you perfect the shots to get that one.
