Thank you all so very much!! I appreciate that you've taken time to post...there are SO many winners now!

Actually, to be honest...I don't understand how this won! I'm not putting down my photo down .... just never felt it was a very strong one!! Go figure!! I felt my "Stormy" (and so did many others) was a much stronger image. (Sigh).

Thanks again, everyone!! #787456

Patrick Campbell 9/17/2004 12:21:19 PM

Dolores, I ask that question all the time about why one photo won over another one. My suggestion is to just enjoy the win! #787538
