I think one of the important aspects in these submissions is what images to send. It needs some courage and judgement call. What is "unique" for most of us here in CNP is not very interesting for many in "main stream nature photography" forums. It pays in the long run to go with our own convictions, not just in the form winning entries but also for deeper inner happiness.

Hey Vidhyun, it is very important to ensure you love, enjoy what you are doing, photographing in your own way. If you ensure that then awards will come on your way without you being aware of it :)

Congratulations on the listing Vidyun.

Keep exploring and clicking Nature, but also learn to observe and enjoy it. It has unlimited learning and fascination to offer. That is more rewarding than any human-created award according to me.

Wishing you a fulfilling future in photography and looking forward to your creations.

Hi All,

Thank you all for wonderful wishes and messages. We as a family sincerely hope that Vidyun continues to enjoy photography. Hope he understands more and more on how nature is the best teacher and healer. Right now our focus has been to spend as much time as possible in nature and provide perspective of subtle lessons, leaving the rest for him to learn by himself.

With regards,
Raviprakash S S

Congratulations Vidyun! To be curious of what is around us, and an open mind - that's probably the key. Interesting photographies could then come more or less as as a by-product. :)
