Hi again, Joannie. I appreciate your encouragement! Ostrich feathers often take a back seat to peacocks, but I think they are definite rivals!

Beautiful shot Teri ~ I love taking photos of feathers and know it's difficult to get the right amount balance of soft/sharpness and this is spot on!

Teri, I LOVE this. The color is so nice and the effects are subtle, yet, really make it pop. It is one of those images that makes one just stop and stare forever at it. Very nicely done!!!

Cheryl and Michelle, thank you both so very much. I just can't stop grinning. My (mathematician/physicist) husband says, "Well, that puts all the finalist recipients in the top 1.852%."

Congrats to all finalists!
