Thanks Soz, and Ragman! I'm sure he will appreciate your comments.
I just received an email from Mike and he's told me that he entered his first enlargement in the West Kootenay Camera Club's annual show last weekend.
There were 350+ entries and amongst the attendees were were 3 judges from the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. Mike received a blue ribbon for his photo!
The entries were mainly from within British Columbia, but there were some from further away. It's a is a recognized event with accredited judges.
So, all-in-all, some good exposure indeed, and a nice win!
