Thanks, Piper,

Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to write a short note. I, too, think it is a lovely photograph, but many GREAT photos are entered onto this site. I thank you for taking the time to write your comments, its very encouraging. I find this site a great inspiration and will continue to follow the progress of everyones photos.

Sam, it's the colors that stand out I think. Very trendy stock shot. What film/digicam & other details can you share about how you took this? I am struggling with the white balance on my D100 for indoor pix with window light. I am getting frustrated and ready to go back to film for indoor shots! Argh!

I am off to Costa Rica in 3 days! YooHoo. Don't have my antimalarial meds yet though. Not good. Wish me luck and a mosquito-free week. I have tons to tell you, but have not had time to write a proper note. Will update you when we return home if not before.
