Nicely done, Donald, I like the re-submit in b&w, as it takes me back to the 'olden days' and the stark memories of life in a 'pool-hall', eh… Very well done, my dear friend - your good friend, Allan #1052827

Thanks a lot, Wally, Claudia, Cindy, Adriel, Dan, Dorothy, Cathy, Donna, Judy, Detrick, Darren, Danilo, Patricia, Allan, Colleen, Tammy, Donna, Murry, Larry, Marsha, Stephen, Stan, Linnea and Adilson.

I'll be making my comments on the finalists tomorrow when I get back to work. My PC here at home is acting weird and making it difficult to do any commenting.

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


This is a re-submission of the shot from last month, only converted to b&w, added a touch of unsharp mask filter and cloned out a few imperfections in the image. Also, gonna try it in Details and Macro instead of People category this time around. I hope ya like it!
