Excellent perspective on this artist giving tribute to an artist giving tribute to an artist.
Well done, Patricia!

Wonderful colours and very good choice of POV, Patricia! I agree with bill, too! This is a great example of an artist paying tribute to another artist doing the same.

Thank you very much, Susan, Brinn, Jeff, Terry, Noel, Bill, Gerda, Stephen, Khawla, Nobi and Sanjay! This was my first experience at such a festival, and I was awestruck! Plus, it was a photographer's paradise, and I certainly wasn't alone. It was nice to be surrounded by so many other photographers. :-) And with a $3 bowl of pasta and a $3 glass of wine on the gorgeous grounds of the mission, I really was in heaven! ;-)

Thanks, Nobi! I haven't had a finalist image go any farther here in years, so I wasn't expecting this one would.
