Yesterday I woke up to hundreds of notifications. I knew I had gotten a DD again. My shot, Canyon Arch, won after posting it over 10 months ago. The results:
- 82 new watchers (a 20% increase)
- Around 7500 views
- Around a 20% favorite rate on the shot.
It's a very cool experience to get a DD. You get FLOODED with compliments and it really feels good. I've only been shooting for almost 3 years now and already am getting a lot of recognition for it, and that's a pretty cool feeling. I just feel very blessed to have a job that pays pretty well. That, coupled with being single with no kids helps me to have the money and the time to invest in equipment and trips to get these shots for you guys. I do it for my own satisfaction, but it's really cool that what I create also makes others smile. That said, I can't take credit. Our creator has made this amazing planet we live on, and has given me the talent to capture it onto an SD card for you guys. I just feel humbled that he feels fit to bless me in so many ways, and I'm totally not deserving of it.
And now a little shameless self promotion

I got a few print requests for Canyon Arch as well. I DO sell prints at my website through Etsy, and I think my prices are fairly inexpensive. I would love if you bought a print to support my habit
Again, thanks so much for all the amazing compliments and for my new watchers. I am amazingly blessed by you, and by our Lord. I'm heading to Banff, Canada in 2 weeks for 9 days. I hope to come back with some great shots for you guys to enjoy!
