Congratulations for winning. This image is amazing for it simpicity of subject and for the detail and interest in the negative space. Composition, color and quality of light are extremely strong elements that keep me coming back for more. Again glad to see you get what you deserve with this image.

Bill, after seeing your mini-pic I decided I'd take a browse...this image is absolutely awesome!!! How did you achieve this? Maybe you already explained it, but you have so many posts it might take me a while to read through them all. AWESOME!!!!
