    Clinched it!

    Update about that TV station's monthly contest that I mentioned a couple pages back.
    I am a finalist...

    First prize is a T3i w/18-55IS kit lens.

    We won.... Very, very, very chuffed about that.

    Thanks everyone for your supportive messages.

    And of course to everyone who have helped and those still pushing me in the right direction.

    Brilliant news. Well done, Bobo.

    But, of course, since the entry was in Mrs Bobo's name, the prize is hers!!

    The bad news is that you have to put with your wife and friends saying, "We told you so!"

    Congratulations!

    Thanks Paul, Victor, Shane, Donald, John, Sergio, Dave, Andre, Mike, Alfred.

    Still cannot believe it but...

    Similar to what people do on the weather sites, wife only wanted to present the shot in the hope that it would be show on the main news on Valentine's Day. I was at 2 minds about it particularly as the pp was not exactly what I was hoping for. It was too warm for a winter shot.

    Things do have a way of twisting and turning in unexpected ways.

    Took many tries but this is what I think it should have looked like.

    Clinched it!
