I'm pleased to share that I received recognition in my first photography competition! My photograph placed second in the "people's favorite" category and received third prize overall, with the winning photograph chosen by the jury. Winning a prize came as a wonderful surprise as I never expected it. Additionally, I was fortunate to sell a print of my photo through the Swiss Photo Club. Moving forward, I'm excited to continue improving my photography skills and capturing high-quality images during my upcoming trips to Madeira and the national parks in Western USA.
