Nicely done Karen. I didn't check many others, but you, Anita Hogue and myself all got EP's for our zoom photos. Never quite know why, but my understanding is that the judges see something in the photo they think is good for others to pay attention. Great job. John #8429188

Super image, Karen, more interesting every time I look at it. I can see it matted and framed -- maybe I'd consider an icy blue-white for the mat and a wide, rich dark brown wood frame -- and hanging in a formal study or library or office. Know anyone with one of those? Congratulations on the finalist and good luck in the next round. #8486965
