Thank you Carol, Patricia, and Karen! So glad you enjoyed my 'Twilight Fishing' image...I'm only sorry to have been so long replying to your great comments though!

Phil and I had had lunch at this beautiful location, and then spent a further few hours just relaxing and enjoying the surroundings... These local boys arrived to try some fishing just as the last of the daylight was fading, and I thought they would add some human interest to my final few shots of the day! ;)

Thanks again... Carolyn :) #940606

Don't dispair Carolyn, as ultimately it's not about winning, but about the Doing that's important! (smile)

Carolyn J. Connolly 12/18/2004 5:18:29 PM

Thanks, Norm - I wholeheartedly agree with your comment!! Phil and I have been involved with camera club photography over the years...and do realize that judging is a very subjective thing (smile)!! :) That was just me kind-of thinking out loud, I guess (hehe)!! The "doing" is definitely what's (most!) important with photography!! ;) I do sincerely congratulate ALL the placegetters this month...VERY well done indeed!! :) #985313

Twilight...on an early winter's evening in June this year, at Wyee Point, NSW Australia... These three lads decided to try their hands at fishing...as it happened, sadly, unsuccessfully!! Some adjustments made using PS CS, & filtered using Neat Image... Taken hand-held 1/30 sec @ f2.8, ISO 104, & 38mm digital focal length...
