After opening presents to one and other, Julie opened her email to discover that she had been featured in an article "20 Fabulous Tree Pictures " by Gurushots – the competition site that they both compete on.
By Wednesday, Bob was working his magic in a competition on the site for "Inspiring Architecture". Suffice it to say that it was a long night and by the wee hours Thursday morning, Bob was in 1st place. Over 4900 photographers competing with almost 18,000 photos boiled down, as he had predicted, to a photo finish (Pun intended).
Bob won his 1st international photo competition by 15 votes!
