I really love this, Robert! The strollers seem mysterious!

You know I'll miss you!! Please don't stay away too long! #41462

Tanya M. Fink

Robert, This is an absolutely stunning photo. Love the mystical effect. Sad to hear you are leaving BP for awhile. I will look forward to seeing more incredible photos when you return. Good luck and a speedy return... #41483

Shelley Sanders

Awaiting your return Robert, great b&w! #41493

Ellen Peach

Outstanding image, Robert.....take care and hurry back! #41537

Carol Engstrom

Hurry back, Robert! I enjoy seeing your work. Hope everything is OK for you.

This is a great shot. There is a real mood to it, but I am still trying to decide how it makes me feel--I think I agree with Dolores. It has a mysterious feel to it. #41551

Sharon E. Lowe

Wonderful image! Hope you'll be back with us soon and good luck for on whatever it is that is making you leave us for a while! #41600

Robert Pranagal

Holly cow!
I have never had such a response!

Murry, Lorraine, Ruth, Dolores, Tania, Shelley, Ellen, Carol, and Sharon!!!

Thank you so much for your kind comments. It makes me warm at heart to hear that someone is going to miss me (or my images).

The reason why I have to leave is quite pathetic. I simply have been banned from BP for repeatedly posting offensive and nasty comments on other people's work...

Keep up the great work, folks, and HAVE FUN!!! #41918

Bernard B. Travers

Wonderful take Robert. See ya. #42093

Jim Miotke

I wanted to correct the record. Robert's statement about being banned is not true.

I think Robert was joking. In a personal email to him, he said that he was simply getting busy with a big project at work.

Anyway, we did not ban him from BetterPhoto. #42165

Robert Pranagal

Yes, I was kidding abou the ban. I am sorry if this caused unneccessary concern.
Best regards, and see you soon. #42173

Murry Grigsby

Shame on you, Robert. You've got to realize you're dealing with an old gezzer with a bad heart! I could go at any minute with posts like yours :0)

Murry #42254

Ruth Denton

Shame on you is right! I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I read your explanation, but now that I know better I'm giggling.
Murry, I'm a nurse....if you DO have a heart attack I could possibly save ya with a little CPR....and with pictures to prove it. ;) #42264

Carolyn M. Fletcher

Congrats Robert! See what happens when you say goodbye! Gotta come back now. #55301

Dolores Neilson

Congrats Robert! I knew this had winning potential! Good luck with the grand!! Am so happy to see you took a break to check out the activity on your image!

And yes!! ...tsk..tsk for making Jim look bad! Though I knew you were heavily involved in a work related project, I also knew that Jim (and others) probably didn't!! #55579

Bernard B. Travers

Congratulations, Robert. #55703

Cathy M. Gromball

Congratulations on finals with this one, Robert! I'm sorry I missed it when you posted it, and having started at the top of the comments, when I got to the part about being banned, I was in shock, thinking, "He's always been so nice with his comments". So, I was relieved to find out you were only joking! This is a wonderful photo, and I sure hope to see you back on here soon!

Robert Pranagal

Hi there!

Great news sure it was!

Cathy, Lorraine, Sharon, and Murry,
thank you so much that you took time to write with your congratulations. I appreciate this even more than the actual win.

Carolyn, unfortunately, taking photos is not my REAL job. I wish it was. Actually, I haven't made a single buck with the camera...

Sharon, don't you worry, when I am back, I'll be as mean as one can get. But, you are safe for some time still...

Again, thank you very much - your comments have made my day. #59266

Shelley Sanders

Such a super b&w scene! Still awaiting your return Robert! Congratulations on your win! #59891

Damian P. Gadal

Congrats on this magnificent image! #59997

Bernard B. Travers

Great win, Robert. #60182

Now that I am back, I keep on being shocked at the response I got...

Thank you so much again! Your support is really meaningful. Appreciate this immensly.

Shelley, Damian and Bernard, I am sorry I failed to thank you for your congratulations earlier. Please accept my apology.

Again, big thanks everyone!
