Hey Laurie, this is a really GREAT image - sorry I missed it earlier! Congratulations on making the finals with it - very well deserved!

I was reading the latest comments on Penny Steiner's 'Sitting on the fence' shot (which I was very glad to see also made the finals!), and decided to have a look at your gallery Laurie...after Penny's comment about "your awesome photo", 'Preparing to Cast'!

You have many wonderful images in your gallery - it has taken me a while to work my way through them, but it is well worth the effort!

Hi Laurie, this is such a terrific shot--one of my very favorites of yours. I'm really happy you're getting some recognition for all of the great shots you've been taking!!! I'm sure you'll have many more contest finalists in the future.
