I want to thank all of you for your kind words and for your constant support and positive feed back to my many submissions. I must admit I was very much surprised to win the Grand Prize. I know this is a great shot, one that I saw as winner the second I stood in front of such splendid beauty. But I can assure you that I had learnt from most of you a great deal of photography to be able to achive this honor. I enjoy very much every day the beautifull work you all affer, and it gives me a great satisfaction to know that so many I have never personally met, can reach out to me and I to them thru this addictive & exciting hobby of photography. May the year 2004 keep all in health and give each of us many opportunities to capture the amazing beauty of creation God has given us,so that we can continue to tresure our memories in this magic box called camera. Always, Viveca.

Ivan and all friends, "Down the Shores Of Shallow River" is a two photo stiched with a program called, Panorama Factory. This place truly exists in a site called Up Snake River. Is about 45 minute from Jackson Hole Wyoming. After stiching, I cleaned a few spots with the healing tool of PS and gave it a slight saturation[5] then checked with unsharp mask. The Colors , transparency,and composition was all given to me at that moment by nature, the artist: God.

You say this was a two shot pano? I clearly can only see one shot three times to make the final image. Clearly visible seams along the two places it's stitched together, and the color/levels adjustments to make the other two shots "look like" they are different.

Tyson, this is two shots together. One sligtly diferent from the other as having a few more trees and some how closer shot.I was going to upload both originals to make you happy, but that is not my job, and I was advised it was not necesary. I shot 4 photos there, two vertical and two horizontal. For more information about this beautiful place you can contact: Russ Burden rburden@ecentral.com, he visits the site twice a year to take people like me thru www.Fototreks.com . Sincerely, Viveca.

I must say that, although it's a beautiful image, stitching two of the same image together to create a panorama effect somehow seems like a cheap trick, perticularly after the single image already won in the prior month. The seam is obvious and makes the far shoreline look rather odd. It's a beautiful scene and shouldn't be manipulated. I prefer the original image.
