    Cool night shot. You don't usually catch these boats in a bath. They are shy.

Very cool... neat to see this after you told me about it (and we got to see some boats dashing through the spray mid-day.)

Beautiful twilight. Love that cobalt sky and the colors and tonality of the lighted buildings. The shower of the water taxis was lagniappe --something extra--to make this outstanding creation a winner! Congratulations, Leslie, on your First Place win!!!!
