When I began my adventure on Panoramio, in April of 2010, I won, quite unexpectedly, the first prize of the contest (in the category "Travel") with this photo of the Eiffel Tower: http://www.panoramio.com / photo/34132742.
Since then my interest in photography has greatly increased and since then I always try to improve my technique, also trying to learn some function of digital image editing.
Thanks to all the people that view my photos!!
