Why thank you so much on the early weekend morning, Carolyn!!! Always a pleasure to hear from you!! I thought I had uploaded this photograph at Betterphoto already and I was mistaken. Thought I'd see how it did. My husband's shape is a bit distorted by the backlighting. His head looks disproportionately smaller than the rest of his body!! #10491

Carolyn M. Fletcher 8/2/2002 9:36:49 AM

Yeah, it would at the angle you were shooting from. Neat shot, though. #10492

Richard E. Perry 8/2/2002 9:42:58 AM

Nice composition... nice to see someone going beyond the normal point and shoot stuff... nicely done. #10494

Dolores Neilson 8/2/2002 11:26:25 AM

Greetings Richard!! And thanks so very much!! With everyone being so busy, it truly is a gift when nice people like yourself take the time to comment. You made my day!! Have a great weekend!! #10501

Richard E. Perry 8/2/2002 12:52:46 PM

Thanks for you nice comment. I think the shape that your husband displays adds a special feeling to the photo..I wouldn't alter anything about it. In Photoshop you can do an enormous amount of different things..creating just about anything your mind can conjour up. I LOVE PHOTOSHOP....recommend it to anyone who is serious about digital photography..Most photos need some degree of tweeking sometimes, and Photoshop is the ultimate answer. Have a good weekend. #10503

How did I miss this one? Especially since you took it in Maine! :) Very cool shot, Dolores. Congrats AGAIN!! :) #14113

Dolores Neilson 9/9/2002 7:59:19 AM

You two are too good to me!! Thank you Adam and Kathleen!! I am honored to be the recipient of such kindness. And am honored to be a finalist with this shot.

Kathleen...I'm a native of Maine. Lived there my entire childhood...moved away from Maine in '87 and been in CT ever since. Mom lives in Ellsworth and aunts and uncles galore there still. Went to my reunion in Fort Kent 95! Very scenic state!

Thank you all for your kind comments! #14118

While visiting a fort in Searsport, Maine, we descended into the underground level. As I was ascending the cement stairs in total darkness, my husband was already at the top, standing in the doorway....this is the result.
