    I knew Surfer's Halo would take first place.. That's an awesome shot. I really wanted to get surfing shots myself, but in Oregon we don't get many surfers... Surfers think the water in norther california gets cold enough to usually need some insulation. Up here, it's colder and most of the places that actually get waves are cliffs with no beaches and travel just wasn't quite possible.

    As far as my entry - It was last minute and more of a tongue in cheek afterthought than a serious effort. I was going to skip this one because I was drawing blanks on ideas and had very few chances to take pictures. I did take that picture (and a bunch more similar to it) yesterday, though and by the time I made it home the idea had perculated.

    Gratz to winners of this round. Your semi-final has already begun. mwink.gif

    Wow, that's great! Do what you do best, what really interests you. I'd say you've got that needed "Wow Factor" pretty much nailed. Welcome and make your own luck! Look forward to seeing your work.

    I couldn't help it! When I was browsing through the popular photos, Surfer's Halo actually called out my name! :D I kept wanting to look away, but I was mesmerized. I just HAD to let Steve know that I thought his shot would win the contest. Only then could I finally avert my eyes and click on to another photo... mwink.gif

    Oh! So I wasn't the only one out there actually hoping on a small level that my shot didn't make it into the top 10...
