Making this my favorite of your April entries, Chris -- just love the subtle white on white patterns and lines here. Exposure is right on. My other favorites were Washington DC (an oft photographed monument and reflection, beautifully framed by the cherry blossoms and the whole is perfectly composed), Love Detail (I know it did not score an EP but I would encourage you to resubmit) and Still Life with Ties (I know the set-up is not yours but I just love it and the bold colors, too, and your exposure and framing are right on). Good luck #8607878

Christopher J. Budny 5/12/2010 7:30:31 PM

Thanks so much, Nikki--love reading your monthly Fav's post! I've entered this several times; not sure white-on-white does as well as bold color at BP! #8607900
