A very warm congratulations, Heather. I so agree with Monika. The lines, the shapes, the shadows, the light, it's all so artistic. If you have an exhibition soon, do mention your Grand Prize Winner Status next to this one!:) Background note: Earlier this month I made a note of your gallery and placed a shortcut in my art folder. I'm just so pleased to know, out of the few photographers that really won me over this month, one of them went on to win the Grand Prize!!!
You should go back to the same spot you took this photograph and just jump and shout with joy. You might get a few odd stares, but we'll know what you'll be doing and the members at B.P. will offer their official statement when contacted about the disturbance. We'll say: Let her be. Let her be. She's Won The Grand Prize Dear. That's like the Grammy of Grammies, so step aside and watch a woman be truly happy!:)
