Brilliant image, Sharon. The blue evening tones in tungsten are great and the light still stays warm.

Sharon, you've got the knack! Not only for taking a great shot, but you pinned this one as your "hopeful" in the discussion thread! I think that means only 2 people got it right this time... :) Congratulations, on both accounts! This is a well-deserved Finalist!
