William, I am so happy that you resubmitted this photo. I don't know how it was overlooked the other month with not even an EP, as you indicated. This image does stand out in the crowd and you should be very proud of it. The award you received is very well deserved.

Just a perfect exposure. Slow shutter for that special effect with the water, and perfect aperture to handle the bright and shaded areas. Does being a programmer and software developer help you get a handle on all these aspects?

Another exceptional image.
