    So happy to be the first to congratulate you on this Finalist, Priscilla. I love the line of cranes marching across the frame, the pair of eagles, the layers of light and color. I hope and believe this will go on.

Wonderful scene. I love the 'largeness' of it, while the Cranes remain the 'stars'. Congratulations, Priscilla.
