    This is my daughter. She usually objects to my photographing her but in a rare moment of acquiescence, I was able to take this one.

Thank you so much America, Peder and Kathleen for gracing my image with the most complimentary and well received comments!! Just arrived from a drive along the Long Island Sound and to find your delightful comments just made my day!! Thanks so much!! Kathleen...my daughter is so funny. She was standing by the monitor and reading your comment and she told me to tell you, "no"! I guess that strong hint was intended for me. Oh well.... (thanks guys!)

She will appreciate it when she gets over her "shy" stage, I'm sure. It's a great shot.

Carolyn....my daughter "shy"?? You would laugh if you met her...shyness is not in her vocab! She hates posing...I'm very demanding as a photographer...I only have myself to blame. Thanks for your time again, Carolyn!

Thank you June Marie!! I appreciate your comment immensely. This is my FIRST high key image..have just heard of the technique very recently. Still not sure what "high key" means but I figured out the technique using curves.

Donna...thanks for the gift of your time and comment!! As for my daughter wanting more pics of her now....well, I extended your compliments to her...she said, "uh uh...it isn't gonna work"! I do appreciate all you've said on this image that is special to me for obvious reasons...it's always special when it's your child or your pet. Your complimentary notes mean the world to me...Thank you!!

OMGosh...I was so busy trying to congratulate everyone and I have 5 more wonderful comments here that I've missed!!!

Gerda, thank you!! I think that perhaps you are right about my daughter being secretly pleased. Yes, I think she is lovely too. It's a shame she doesn't like it when I take pics of her. And congrats again on your "Sun on Water2"!!

Jeff...thank you so much!! I appreciate that you've acknowledged my image. And congrats again on your, "Mono"!! I wish I would have taken it!! I like it alot!

Greetings Donna!! My...here we are again this month congratulating each other. One of the best things about having become a member here is having gotten to know you! Isn't it so much fun! I am totally delighted with my win! Placing here is an honor considering the 2200 plus submissions! And Congrats on your big time win again!! That's such a cool pic, Donna!

Carolyn!! I just finished replying to your comment on my duckling shot a couple minutes ago. Hope you're rested from mowing the lawn now!! I can always count on you to lift up me up! Thanks again for being so sweet!

And last, but certainly not least... June Marie! A heartfelt note of thanks to you too!! I appreciate the thoughtful congratulatory note that made me smile!

HI Damian!!

Thank you so much! My computer has been down over a week and I just ordered a new one and am finally up and running again (other one still with tech ...have had two failures in 5 months!). How nice it was to have rec'd notification that you had commented on my image! Thank you so much! You're always so thoughtful, Damian. You have nice qualities in addition to being a fine photographer!!
Thanks again!!
