Love the Skywheel images! (Even if this is from a while ago!) This might be my favorite, I don't know! Great pov! Glad I'm not up there though! Wonderful work, Chris! #8380066

Christine Lobsinger 2/13/2010 9:22:26 PM

I think they are the most impressive peices in my gallery. I was thinking on re-arranging my images.. say, putting animals and people first, BUT then I thought NO.. I love these along with my architecture peices being first.

Thanks again..



Thomas E. Hinds 2/14/2010 7:28:47 AM

I like a lot of your images, Chris! The light on the Sky Wheel images is very good! I myself have one little Finalist that was gotten in my first month or two (I've had my gallery about 11 months). I like many of my EPs better than that Finalist so I've left everything where they are. In time I might re-arrange. Who's to know where to put what? LOL!
