Two young people at the World War 2 Memorial in Washington, DC. So many people gave so much, that we could enjoy the freedoms we do today. Special thanks to Gail Vitikacs for being host to my sister and I when we visited Washington, DC!

WOW!!! It was very hard to pick one of your 12 outstanding finalists to choose from to comment on. I would love to comment on each one but I just don't have that much time. :)

Your images are all brilliant and I look forward to seeing which ones receive GOLD.

HUGE congratulations, Ken. Your work is truly exceptional and inspiring!!!
