Thank you all so very much!!! I'm still stunned. When I came upon this site nearly a year ago I never even imagined winning a finalist and now here today I see a gold medallion. I'm shocked and thrilled! I believe my photography has grown and matured and I credit that to all of you. Visiting your galleries, studying your work, getting tips here and there from a lot of you and the never-ending flow of encouragement. BetterPhoto and all of you have really made an impact in my life. I doubt I would have ever bought a SLR. Of course I have you all to thank for my being broke now too…lol. Thanks again everyone!
