Bill,
I am also very late, but I agree with your "surreal" comment. The blur and motion of everything but the heads, as Cheryl said, really gives it such a unique look and feel about it. I didn't read everyone's comments but agree also with Ken: you are the master here; all are so good!!

Know that just because we don't comment on all of them, doesn't mean we don't think they are great!

Jim
