UPDATE

Just tonight I passed the 10K shutter count on my D80. When I went to upload my pictures from shooting tonight for a challenge, I noticed my images went into two different folders. My first reaction was that I had broken something on the camera that caused it to reset, but realized that was silly. A quicker inspection showed the file numbers restarted at 0001. It’s a small milestone, yes, but serves as further validation that I am indeed moving ahead with my artwork.

Although I missed the last challenge, my entry is in this round with 8 days to spare…or change my mind! I’ll be sure to post my entry along with the 2nd and 3rd options after voting has ended. And in the spirit of full transparency and putting myself out of my comfort zone, I’ll also be sharing important feedback on my work as well as its ranking.
