My New Year's Resolution (Part II)

One of my New Year's resolutions last year (or was it the year before?) was to get some of my photos published [printed in a book or magazine]. To this end, I entered some photos in a couple of on-line photo contests. One of them was Japanzine's "Gaijin Eye" contest. Unfortunately, none of my photos were chosen for the main pages, however, one of my photos was used as a column-filler...

Here’s a link to their main selection: The Gaijin Eye

And here's the link to my Japazine entries: My Entries

I know any kind of judgement is very arbitrary [a personal choice not based on clear rules] but, to be honest, I didn't think "Too Wet for the Park" was my best photo. Of course, I understand that maybe it wasn't chosen purely on its photographic merits [good points] – it might have had something to do with their desire to show a cross-section [variety] of images of the Kansai.

Anyway, my new New Year's resolution is to get published in a size that doesn't need a magnifying glass be viewed!
