Dale Ann Cubbage 10/5/2004 11:04:30 AM

What a gorgeous woman!! Her eyes have many stories to tell. I love her attire and accessories too. And you have photographed her beauty and attitude perfectly! A lovely mood here, full of mystery and intrigue! It has me thinking, who is she? Where is she from? What has she been through? What can I learn from her or teach her? Wow, what thought provoking image, that has really touched me. I love this Nancy, and if it doesn't win I am going to be so disappointed!!

Very nice portrait, Nancy, and glad to see this one in the finals! Isn't it odd how self-image often differs from more objective appraisals from others? It's like hearing one's tape recorded voice. #1041864

Nancy Grace Chen 1/18/2005 5:16:52 AM

I appreciate all of your comments and am very happy that this has made the finals! It is a personal favorite... I was pleased that it won at a couple of other sites but wondered why it did not win here (although I think I know why: technical issues). Anyhow, thanks again!! Best of luck to you all.

Nancy,
congratulations to you. This is an incredible photograph. One question, in your gallery...how do you get your initials in the bottom of your photos etc. Is that considered a watermark? Just wondering because I think that is a good idea and would like to do that myself. Take care,

Brent #1141933
