400 and more to come.....

I made it to 400! YUPEE!

Not without your support of course. Today in photoblogging style I've decided to post all 399 images that I've posted since I started blogging on Shutterchance.

This montage took me the best part of 4 hours today so you can kind of guess what I did to create it, Yes, I downloaded every single thumbnail in my archive, organised them and pasted them one by one. I tried to do it in Picasa (which would have been a lot quicker), but it wasn't having any of it.

Anyway thank you very much for supporting the growth of Alakija.com, you guys own part of this too.

On a side note is it obvious from looking at the montage the time when my style of images changed?  (or maybe just when I got a new camera). I don't know but towards the top the contrast in the images is somewhat less compared to those at the bottom, do you see what I mean? I could be just talking rubbish.

I nearly went mad trying to figure out how my style had changed when I posted a montage. In the end I concluded that it hadn't, but I'd got better at photoshop smile ...Congrats.

Bravo, sweetheart... this is a great body of work, and I'm immensely proud of you. I'll be cheering along on your meteoric rise to fame!!!

The one thing you DO need to work on is your belief in your talent and where it can take you..you're not going to find that in the positive comments and commissions rolling in..it has to come from you...
