Superb clarity, tones, colors, lighting, b/g & presentation here, Laura! Creative & fantiastic idea!

You are right about the people on BP, Laura! I often say- to myself- that it is not always easy to get such a large group of wonderful people together like this. BP is a big part of my leisure life. Thank you for the dedication. #8900519

Very clever, Laura! The lighting and DOF is perfect, too. I agree with Patrick - BP is a huge part of making me relax and think about something besides work. What a great way to recognize the folks who work here! #8900766

Hi Marty! Thanks, I almost put it under MT but wasn't sure. Don't know if I can put it in for the MT on another day or not. Do you know?

Hey there Paddy!! You are quite welcome and thanks for the great comments. BP is a BIG part of my life too! :)

Hi Michelle! This is a great stress reliever for me too. Thanks for your kind comments!!! Have a great day my friends! Laura:)
