Alhamdulillah, I won again in DMBLGIT September 2008, this time for Aesthetics Category. So after the first badge I wore in my blog, now I deserve to add another badge. From various colors of badges that the host sent me by email, we (my beloved and I) chose the one below:
DMBLGIT September 2008 was hosted by Shari of Whisk: a food blog - musings on food, taste & life, in a very short time (only 13 days).
At first I thought, there would be no DMBLGIT Sept 2008, since nobody seems like hosting, but then Shari offered herself to be the host and she did a great job by collecting 71 beautiful entries (click to see the gallery) from around the globe. Thanks a lot Shari!
When Shari announced the judges (Béa of La Tartine Gourmande, Sabra of Cookbook Catchall, Matt of wrightfood, Kate of Aapplemint, and Hannah of BitterSweet), I was surprised. All the judges are well known with their beautiful food photographs and I believed that their standard is beyond my photography ability. But then, they chose and trusted my work. I am so honored and proud to be picked among others. The photo below is my entry for DMBLGIT September 2008 that won the Aesthetic Category.
The judges said: Having the foreground muffin sitting in a little cup is really cute. The cup and half muffin on the left adds a lot to the composition and is in focus enough to be interesting, but out of focus enough so as not to distract from the foreground. Very aesthetically pleasing.
Thanks Judges for trusting my work.
I can win only because of the support from my fellow foodie bloggers.
Thanks a lot mates!
Eliza from notes from my food diary, my fellow Indonesian foodie blogger, won the second place (overall winner) with her beautiful photo of Vanilla Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting.
Congrats Eliza, you really deserve it and I'm so proud of you!
