Thank you Rahul. I took this one some time ago. It was taken early one morning with lots of dew around. The web was taken against a background of water. I darkened the shot in PS by duplicating the layer and setting opacity to multiply which brought out the 'sparkles' even more.

Remarkable capture with a GREAT viewpoint. The golden shades of bokeh really do make this capture GREAT.

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of February, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile
