    ...and a Bronze Bear Paw!

    I live in the center of Italy, in Abruzzo, a wonderful region with high mountains and 200kms of coastline. I love travelling and taking landscape pictures (but I like every kind of photography). I'm here just to have fun and to improve my skills!

    Goals for 2017:

    I want to have fun on DPC like I did for years until 2014. No pressure, no specific goals, just a place and a way to express my creativity!

    Goals for 2014:

    Never complain of a score. Take all this challenge stuff less seriously and enjoy every moment here.
    To get a Top10 using my GoPro Hero3+

    Goals for 2013:

    Score a personal best (A new one - 8.09!!!)
    Get a 7+ with a landscape
    An average score over 6.30 (6.2598)
    See 31.gif h2 behind me in the Points and Ribbon race on 8th January 2014 (I couldn't say I got it, since Oliver stopped entering challenges during the year)

    Goals for 2012:

    My top 9 photos with an average score over 7 9
    To reach 10 ribbons won 19
    An average score over 6.20 6.24
    Top 5 in the FSM Marathon 2012 5th
    Top 10 in the DPC Points Race 2012 4th

    Goals for 2011:

    - My top 5 with an average score over 6.5
    - A couple of 7 3 seven
    - 3 or 4 ribbons 5 ribbons
    - An average score over 6 6.10
    - Top ten in the FSM Marathon 3rd
    - Enjoy myself shooting for the challenges---
    A new one:
    - Top 25 in the DPC Points Race 2011 (4 months left and I'm around 50th place, so it's gonna be very hard!) - At the end of year I am 28th (without the DQ in the Lego challenge I would be 25th ;-))
