frank w. degenhardt 8/3/2013 6:35:54 AM

When I pull up this page Jeff, I see that six out of the eight pictures have earned the gold. I think these last two entries will make that eight out of eight being gold. Its always a thrill to get that shot off and you have only one shot and a hint of a second to do it, then have it turn out so beautiful like this. This is a picture that you would think the photographer spend tons of time setting up. I am so loving the silhouette and that boy on his bike. The trees, the land lines, even the boy wearing his helmet, everything so sharp and clear. Incredible, award winning work my friend. Outstanding. #10794511

Stephen Zacker 8/3/2013 7:03:07 AM

There's so a wonderful sense of old-fashioned summer lightheartedness captured here, Jeff....no electronic games, no organized soccer match, etc. - just a boy out for a ride on his bike and off to his next great adventure somewhere. Wonderful tones, perfect silhouettes and timing. I'm betting winner! #10809037
