    For the first time, I attended a Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk this year. The day was grey and dreary, threatening rain, and the sky was white. I brought only my E-M5 and 17/1.8 lens. I wasn't all that thrilled with my shots that day, and I processed them more heavily due to the dreary atmosphere. Well I entered one and forgot all about it. And yesterday when I checked Facebook, my local photography club had posted a message that my entry won for the REO Town walk in Lansing, Michigan! What a great surprise! Woo hoo, just had to toot my own horn a bit. :biggrin:

    Congrats, well done! Nice shot, too! I like the contrast between the gritty concrete and metal, and the glassy surface of the water and the delicate foliage.
