Default My Grand Princess photo wins award.

I was really excited to find out that my photo of the Grand Princess shot from Princess Cays on our cruise in April has won the Digital Photo of the Day award (May 16, 2002) at Steve's Digicam Website.

Here is a link to the site: http://www.steves-digicams.com/daily_dpotd.html After today (May 16th), you will have to scroll down click on May 16th date on the calendar of past winners to see the photo.

Thanks Jane and Donna... I really appreciate your replies. This particular digital photo contest is one of the most competitive on the web since they choose only one photo per day where most sites have multiple categories and winners. I consider it a true honor to have my photo selected.

I use an Olympus C-2100 CAMEDIA Ultra Zoom digital camera. This camera has 2.1 megapixels (1.9 megapixel effective) with a 10x OPTICAL zoom plus 2.7 digital zoom with Image Stabilization.

Here is what it looks like...

We liked your photo so much that I'm using it as wallpaper on my PC at work and our computer at home. We were on the Grand last March, and are going again in December. I hope you don't mind our using your picture.

I glad you are enjoying my photo and you are certainly welcome to use it on your desktop. If you make any money from it however, you gotta sent that to me. (grins) The versions you are seeing here online are greatly reduced files. If you would like a full size, high quality version, drop me an e-mail.
