In 2016 I decided to take a chance and enter the Shoot and Share Contest. More than 74,000 people were involved from 149 countries around the world. Over 225,000 photos were submitted which were then voted on more than 32 million times. I was completely shocked when I found out that six of my photos placed in the top 10 %, 20%, and 30%, and one even made it to the finalist round! I entered again this year and 6 of my photos made it to the top 10%, 20%, and 30%. I was very honored to be recognized in this way among some extremely talented photographers from all over the world! I am excited to finally be able to share which of my photos placed in the contest!
