Kristi A. Howson 1/7/2005 8:44:53 PM

Thanks so much Kara, Colette, Kristy, Diane, Terry Judy & Donna for your very wonderful comments. I really appreciate it. This is one of those shots where my camera settings were all wrong but the moment would only last for a few the boys father walked toward him. Thanks to PSP9 I was finally able to remove the noise as a result of shooting at 800 ISO. It's a "special" shot for me so I have always been willing to try new things with it. Thanks again. #1021507

Thinks so very much everyone for your wonderful comments...if only you knew how much each and every word means to me. I couldn't ask for a better finalist than this one...for me it is a very special image for the reasons I took it and what it means. It has always reminded me of "The Circle Game" as the little boy looks in awe of Sunset with a whole life in front of him...filled with so many things...not all good...not all bad...but a life of experiencing many of the things the world has to offer -Kristi #1121212

Thanks so much everyone for the kind and generous comments. It's what makes a win like this so special. I took this over a year ago under conditions that weren't ideal. I was finally able to get rid of the noise/grain and I'm so happy that the judges found it worthy of a win here.
