I loved this boathouse scene with the single boat the instant I saw it; it just welled up the emotion in me. And at the time, I thought about a mystery behind the photo, which made this just perfect for this theme! Thanks for all your comments; so glad to hear such positive feedback!

Wow, thanks everyone and also thanks to the judges for their simple but very appreciated comment. I have always loved this shot and was scratching my head as to why it kept getting overlooked. This is about the 4th resubmit and I am glad I did not give up. And yes, Nikki, it did finally pay off!
