    and this, ladies and gentlemen, is by the guy who preceeds all his postings on our minnesota board by telling us how much his photos suck......sheesh.....now maybe he will believe that he does get a good shot now and then. :)

    we minnesotans are very proud of you, dave. clap.gif

    Thanks everyone. I'm a little under the weather tonight, so I'll keep this short.
    All the shots (in both rounds) where great shots. For the record, I voted for
    Gus's clown shot in the first and Daniel's blue tent in the second.

    The only reason that I came up with this shot, was for one of the challenges.
    The quality of the shots that go into the challenges made me work harder
    to get this shot.

    So everyone that has entered, commented, or voted in the challenge
    section can take a bow also. You folks all helped me to get this shot.

    (so much for short eh):D

    Thanks again.
    dave.
