I'm just stunned, Jeff! I got three others. I already entered for today so I can't put up my "news" until tomorrow.
This one is a direct result of how we all collaborate with our work in Phellos. I'd have never thought of flipping this image. This was "passover" a while ago!

Thanks to all of you guys. #8543836

Thank you Linda. This is such a great little lake near Rocky Mountain National Park! What I'd give to have a house on this lake. #8549123

ACBP - Composition. The use of diagonal lines in this compostion bring the viewer from the far left through the image. Also there are diagonal lines in the water converging onto the dock where the most important part of the image is - the boys heading home across the dock. Using the Rule of Thirds, the last young man is nearly in the center of the first crossing point of the first vertical and horizontal line. Set-up: There was beautiful light at this time but it was fading fast so I opened up the aperture to f/5.6, set my ISO to 200 at 1/500 of a second. I wish I'd had a tripod that night so I could have closed down the aperture to at least 11 or so.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/500 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 28.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XT
