Dolores, this is my kind of shot. Wow, so beautifully captured. Just gorgeous! #621433

Dolores Neilson level-classic 6/28/2004 3:21:25 PM

Thanks so much, Guy! I am so complimented by your post! My friend thought I was crazy to bring my camera on a kayak but I say camera bodies are disposable. The lens is a different story! Thanks so much for the smile! #621452

Mette Vendelboe Allison level-classic 6/30/2004 11:24:29 AM

Beautiful place and photo, I really like the great clarity and the way the title makes me see your work, Dolores! #624984

Dolores Neilson level-classic 6/30/2004 11:35:03 AM

THank you, Mette! sure are making the rounds! Thanks so much for giving me your generosity! I am very appreciative. And I'm delighted that a year later, you still post here. #625008

Mette Vendelboe Allison level-classic 6/30/2004 1:08:57 PM

...and I'm glad that you still remember me:-) I have won many finalists but not one second place yet! That I'm not too happy about but as you've already noticed, I don't give up! Have a nice evening! #625077

Dolores Neilson level-classic 6/30/2004 2:22:00 PM

Of course I remember you!! HOw can I forget you! I know it's frustrating to not win at the level you feel you deserve...I truly understand. I have experienced that at many sites myself. But do think on this (and remind ME when I'm feeling down about my wins): When I started, submissions were approx. 4000....that was two years ago. Now....the contest is over 12,000! So the standards are higher with amateurs and professionals competing...much harder to make a win than say a year ago. Word has gotten around, I guess. But try not to feel's harder for EVERYONE. I know it's not making 2nd place win but making finalist is still a big honor considered that you're picked out of that many. Chin up and don't give up! #625157

Patrick Campbell 6/30/2004 5:27:06 PM

Dolores, I think you have some great shots submitted here this month, and this is another one. Your kayaker's point of view really makes the shot! Great job!


Kathleen Clemons 7/7/2004 2:00:37 PM

I missed this one, Dolores, it's excellent! #635996

Susana Matos 7/7/2004 3:56:42 PM

Cheers from Portugal, Su #636108

Dolores Neilson 7/7/2004 4:05:30 PM

HI Patrick! Thank you for your complimentary post! The water seems very calm but I just couldn't keep my kayak steady for composition so I asked my husband to butt his up against mine...the kayak, I mean ;). It was a nice trip on FAther's Day that we all enjoyed. THanks so much!

Hi Kathleen! Thank you very much! It always a pleasure to hear from you!

Hello Susana! Many thanks for posting your compliment! I appreciate it so much! #636122
