Nikki McDonald 3/11/2010 6:17:01 AM

My pick for favorite from your February entries, Donna. As I said before, the color and clarity are breathtaking and the composition is perfect. Love the way the vertical lines of the reflections of the lights continue the lines of the pier supports.
I noticed you have re-submitted, edited or otherwise, several other personal favs -- Beach Vibrations, Sun Kissed Teen, and Destiny to name three -- and I sure would love to see them all go on! I also liked Be Mine for the moment captured and excellent focus and After the Rain for the lighter palette and interest of the foam covered beach. Great month, Donna. #8447580
