BP Members: Editor's Picks Label Now

BetterPhoto Members:

They have now added "Editor's Picks" seals to any photos that have been chosen. Evidently they even backdated to all they have ever chosen because I have some that were chosen when I first joined in 2005.

Until Johnnie told me, I didn't even know there were Editor's Picks. Thanks Johnnie.

Check out your gallery to see which of yours were chosen.

(I hope I did this posting correctly. I have never "blogged" before).

- JPG Magazine Has anyone seen this magazine? It's crazy great. From the website: JPG Magazine is for people who love imagemaking without attitude. It's about the kind of photography you get when you love the moment more than the camera. It's for photographers who, like us, have found themselves online, sharing their work, and would like to see that work in print.
