Hi Carolyn: This is a terrific shot! The backlighting is perfect for this feather - it really emphasizes the lines and curves so nicely. Also, a great job in moving in sooooo close to your subject and filling the frame ... fine work, Carolyn!

dHi Carolyn, I found a PC that I can use for a while until mine is repaired and that may take weeks. It feels good to be in action again, even if it's only partial action. I had to see this awsome image again too!!

Now look how wonderful Kerry is!!. He commented on this terrific shot.

I think that you should take one of his classesdd now, and see all of of his critiques because then you'll always know weather or not to post an image becuase you'll have a much clearer understanding of what is good, great or just OK picture.

I hope that you are convinced NOW about this one,because, he sure told you the truth about it!!

Thanks., Kerrry! I bet Carolyn is thrilled whith your critique.

Those judges and super talented & wise instructors (KERRY DREAGAR), to name one particular favourite; know their stuff!! . It's one of the best that you ever shot.

Carolyn, I'm taking Kerry's extension course next if you are ready to try one! I'd really enjoy being in a class with you. I guarantee that it will be a very forfilling and fun class for you. It will be worth every penny and minuite spent. You'll absolutly love Kerry just like we ALL LOVE HIM. I can't get enough.

Carolyn, congratulations of this terrific win. I don't know how I missed it in the finalists list, becasue there were only 572 pictures in that category out of over 13,000 entrants. There's nothin I can say about the photo that hasn't already been said, so the only thing left is the congrats and to let you know that I'm very proud of you. Well done and well deserved - Allan
