Ehhh - I don't get it. One is a finalist and one is not even a EP!! Go figure.

Actually, of the two I would have chosen this one, SSSister - because of the 'reflection' in the lens. Absolutely brilliant!!!! #10858264

Laura E. Swan level-classic October 01, 2013

Hi everyone.

This was fun to take in the mirror that day and even more fun in DDR afterwards.

I like this one better than the one that got a finalist (that had no reflection in the lens)...I try and refrain from trying to understand the reasons why even the exact same images can get nothing and the other goes gold.

It makes us feel very lost in the shuffle for sure.

Oh well. At least we have each other right? And I am very grateful for all of you!

Thanks everyone. :D #10858816

Pom it takes your skills in the DD to "embellish" your already beautiful SP with a very cool reflection. Since the original shot made it to the Finals, I'll be interested in seeing what the judges do with this version... ;-D
Have a peaceful Sunday, Sweet Friend!

Laura E. Swan level-classic October 06, 2013

I guess they thought the other one was better, Mare. Lol...(I just noticed what I wrote above, too! A-hem!I must have been fed up)... I consider it a significant change, which is what they ask for if you re-enter an image.

BUT- THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your kind words. They means a whole lot to me. :) More thank you know. xo
