In order to keep the hobby interesting, and to judge where my skills are in relation to others, I often submit completed images to various sites that offer either a monthly challenge or who have a "picture of the day". On occasion, my images are selected for recognition.

When this happens, I'll put a link to the contest or recognition in the image's description and include the image in this Album.
