    I don't know how Winston was able to pick a winner from this challenge, I was truly amazed at all of the fantastic "soulflul" portraits that were entered. Fun topic!
    Congratulations Gina, well deserved!

    Before this scrolls off the bottom of the page, I want to say thank you to everyone who offered congratulations. It was a wonderful surprise to win and I really appreciate your kind comments. wings.gif

    Better yet, though, is seeing all the entries in the new mini-challenge. WOW! What a collection of gorgeous, interesting, and sometimes mysterious photographs. bowdown.gifbowbowdown.gif

    Oh wait. I have to pick one winner. That part is definitely not good.

    This is definitley a masochistic contest - the winner's prize is to have to perform the impossible? headscratch.gif

    To that I say, keep 'em coming.
