NAPP Image Of The Week

Well, I'm a happy little bunny! I joined NAPP (The National Association of Photoshop Professionals) about two weeks ago and uploaded a few images to the portfolio section. Within a few days of this image being posted I started to get some comments congratulating me on 'IOTW'. I had absolutely no idea what it meant so navigated my way to NAPP's home page and saw my picture being advertised at the top as the 'Image Of The Week'.

I was a bit taken aback by this I must admit. Certainly wasn't expecting it at all so felt very flattered. But wait!! That's not all!! A couple of days after that, Photoshop User Magazine contacted me to ask if they could publish it. Of course they can!!! America. Biiiiiig audience. 

There's no guarantee that they will publish it but it's nice to be considered and it's certainly nice to be 'IOTW'. I'm going to make a badge....

Meanwhile, whilst I'm bigging it up guy, here's a few things that people have been kind enough to say.....You might get bored reading them but I'm lovin' my five minutes!!!

As I said before - great capture - I think this should be on display somewhere locally, although I don't know where that is!
