As Murry said, no. 1 was so impressive, I didn't even want to look for a "mistake"! This MUST be the overall winner.

I want dibs on shooting Caroline eating her camera. Not that I think this photo won't win (I do think it will) but I seem to remember a certain beach volleyball photo a month or so back that we ALL thought would win and didn't win squat...so I guess it ain't over til it's over..I am glad we have a few more days to ponder who will actually will win or not though..makes the contest more fun!
