    A big congratulations to all that made it and to those that didn't make it in the top10. So many good photos to choose from. I'm sure it made it hard on the judges to bring it down to 10.

    clap.gifclapCongratulations to the finalists, it's always a bit depressing when you don't get a single vote, but considering the quality of the entries this round it takes the edge off of it.

    It is a little depressing, but at least you know that some of us included you in our favorites.

    Congratulations to all of the finalists!!!

    Another Kind of "Win"
    While I have some disappointment about not making the top 10, I am very happy to say that I am not majorly bummed as I was after my SF2 entry didn't make it - I really feel OK about it!

    I also realized that if my entry had been selected, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to experience the difference in my response to a similar situation. Just knowing that some growth has occured is worth it.

    Thanks to those who sent PM's in appreciation of the image. There is a lot of support that goes on here behind the scenes, and the giving and receiving of it feels very good.

    BTW, here is the image I had initially planned to enter, but decided to replace it with Shamanic Dream, though I don't know if it would have fared any better: :D

    Hope to join the party again next time,

    Lovely quality to the light in that image.

    Peter

    PS. You'll definitely be back for SF4. I'd lay money on you making it.

    Congrats also to all the SF3 Finalists.

    Congrats on a nice semifinal round y'all. For those of you feeling down about not making the top-10, remember that you at least got this far. The view from the seat of those that got to be spectators is truly depressing. rolleyes1.gifroflrolleyes1.gif ~actually, it was kind of relaxing~ :D
