I agree with Murry. You did such a wonderful job capturing the saturated colors and crisp details in the low key image, Doc! I love the blue flowers and the lighting! It has staying power in my mind's eye. #8518601

Nikki McDonald level-addict 4/10/2010 5:24:28 AM

Pretty hard to pick a favorite from among your March entries, Doc, but I've settled on this one. Everything about it is perfect in my opinion: the lighting, the colors, the detail, the contrast between the blossoms and the background, the composition. It really does deserve more than an EP.
My other contenders were Boo's Place -- I don't think it's a finalist contender but I have to tell you it jumps out at me every time I see it on the Editor's Picks page; Music Holders -- I love the bold color and the simplicity of the composition; McDonald's Moon -- afraid the commercial "copyright" aspect may hold it back but it's brilliant; Fab Four -- finally just right IMO :); and Color of Music -- I think it's cool and I know how much time you spent so it's a sentimental favorite. Good luck. #8523689

Nikki McDonald level-addict 4/18/2010 5:22:49 PM

Oh Doc we are all cheering, you know! Yay for Kara and her great eye and yay for you and a wonderful image. Congratulations on the finalist badge and good luck in the next round.
