    Cool!!!!
    Several of the ones I was sure would place in the top 10 did!

    I'm actually quite amazed at where I placed this time around
    I called it my placeholder.

    I had a better idea or at least I thought - but when I was in the middle of the shoot I saw someone had a similar premise for an entry. So I left my placeholder as is.

    Pleased I did.

    Thank you, to all the judges!

    Congratulations to all the entrants and the top 10 finalists awesome work!

    Wow indeed, Nik! My feelings exactly! I'm very impressed by the creative work everyone is doing.

    I picked 16 as "most likely," but 11 of those didn't make the top ten, which is fairly typical (so if I'm voting for you in the future, don't get your hopes up! :D)

    I really liked every image that was chosen in the top 10 - I just feel a little sad some of my "fav's" didn't make it in, especially "Night Vision" - so full of creative mystery.

    Congrats to all who participated!

    A special thanks to Sean Sherstone and Thusie for all their encouragement and guidance throughout. Both are awesome teachers and exceptional human beings. Always willing to look at yet another shot and give me their honest critique. Thanks so much.

    Wow, I'm glad I got up early to shoot.

    Wow, wow, again thanks all and congratulations to everyone.

    One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation...I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards --- and, of course, the whip God gave me."

    clap.gif CONGRATULATIONS Everyone!

    With all of the absolutely fantastic talent on this forum, I still can hardly believe that I made it in--I am sooooooooooooooo EXCITED wings.gif --My poor husband, last night when I saw the results, I woke him out of a dead sleep with all of my happy exclamations!

    Thank you to the judges and thank you all for giving me the opportunity to come out of "lurkdom" to be part of such a great forum! I have been watching and learning here and finally took the plunge and posted--your amazing photograpy has been intimidating to me, yet the friendliness you exude is so inviting that I hope to become a regular "face" around here.

    Thank you so much for the compliment!iloveyou.gif

    It is difficult to not treat the voting results as a "pass or fail" grade, but to get support from others really makes it easier to accept it for its subjectivity. I really had fun doing this shoot with my daughter and am pleased with the end result. To know others appreciate the image also is such a wonderful bonus!
