Group Favs – 113 in one day! 15-03-10

I’ve just finished looking through approximately 550 of your photographs. A tough undertaking, and one of my own making because I’ve put off writing this post far too often.

However, there is a bright side to it. Here, we have 113 of your photographs that are really cool. They’re all my favourite photographs from the ones you submitted to the Beyond Phototips Flickr Group. Please take a look at them, and if you think the thumbnails look cool visit the group and check them out. If you would like your photographs to be featured here, I invite you to submit them to the flickr group. I’ll take a look at the submissions and post some of my faves real soon.

Really!

Hope you enjoy viewing the results of your own hard work.
