No Freaking Way!

I have received an amazing message on Flickr today:

Hi Jess,

I am writing to let you know that one of your photos has been short-listed for inclusion in the fourth edition of our Schmap Baltimore Guide, to be published at the end of this month.

http://www.schmap.com/shortlist/p=45658635N00/c=SF20122471

Clicking this link will take you to a page where you can:
i) See which of your photos has been short-listed.
ii) Submit or withdraw your photo from our final selection phase.
iii) Learn how we credit photos in our Schmap Guides.
iv) Browse online or download the second edition of our Schmap Baltimore Guide.

While we offer no payment for publication, many photographers are pleased to submit their photos, as Schmap Guides give their work recognition and wide exposure, and are free of charge to readers. Photos are published at a maximum width of 150 pixels, are clearly attributed, and link to high-resolution originals at Flickr.

Our submission deadline is Sunday, November 25. If you happen to be reading this message after this date, please still click on the link above (our Schmap Guides are updated frequently – photos submitted after this deadline will be considered for later releases).

Best regards,

Emma Williams,
Managing Editor, Schmap Guides

The picture that is in the running is this one of the MD Science Ctr:

Personally, I didn’t think it turned out well because I had used the zoom on the camera and I hate using the zoom (the pictures aren’t as sharp or clear, in my opinion). But, apparently, someone likes it enough to include it in their guide!

This email made my day!
