I could see cropping this to a vertical to concentrate the center of the photo. #7655137

Nikki McDonald level-classic 6/20/2009 7:42:51 AM

Thanks for looking, Judges -- this is my first Judges Comment. Pretty cool :)
I actually have a vertical taken at the same time but I didn't think it had as much potential -- I'll have to go back and look at what I can do with it for another time.
Thanks to everyone else, too, for your congratulations. I spent a lot of time on this one and I'm delighted to have it recognized as a finalist. #7655617
