Me, too, Aimee. I thought that black and white version was the one to go with as well. But then we can never tell what the judges think. I do like the subdued colors in this one (a different night's sunset). That was what I was so impressed with there, the fact that sunset each day was so different.

Thank you, Patrick. I just got back from your gallery. This is where I need to go for inspiration. I have veered from macro lately and need to start taking more serious look at the little things. Great gallery! #10061263

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Congratulations! Merna

Rita -- I'm just not understanding why it didn't go further. When it gets as far as a Finalist, we can't re-enter it can we? I forget the rules. I thought your train should have gone further as well. #10126434

I've re-entered finalists....I don't think there are rules against it. #10126766
