My first batch of approved Editorial images

It is almost two months now since I joined Dreamstime. I sent in several Editorial images this week and all of them got approved. It was very exciting.

These pictures are from the 21st Sand Castle Day on South Padre Island. This is one of the largest international sand sculpture competitions in the United States. Sand sculptors from all over the world came to this beautiful South Texas beach to create their masterpieces.

Sand Castles are quite a popular topic:

Sometimes the topic is a pleasant surprise.

It was a great day to enjoy and appreciate the work of the artists, as well as a wonderful opportunity to capture those precious moments of people and those beautiful art works.

All pictures I sent are from the "Master of Sand" catergory which showcased some amazing works. I also captured many great moments from amateur sculptor competitions and kids who were very devoted to their work. From their looks of concentration as they were working, or happy smiles when they finished, we might have been witnessing masters in making. It has been a week, it might no longer be newsworthy, should I still send in more for editorial images?

Thank you for your comment and visiting my images! I like that red flamingo too, I took it in a very rainy day. Zoo animals are much more interesting in the rainy summer day than when it's sunny and hot. It was a lot more challenging to take the picture though. I got myself very wet when I tried to keep the camera dry.

Thank you very much for your support! It is one of the great fun for photography, to preserve and share those beautiful things in life. Luckily we can do so much easier nowadays than ever before.

I love your red flamingo image - his neck is almost shaped in number 8
