Thank you very much, Sharon!

Rona L. Schwarz February 01, 2014

What an absolutely superb in-camera blur, Stacey! I love doing these ever since I took courses with William Neill and Tony Sweet. I have entered many at BP and they never seem to do well. How nice to see that yours is recognized - but then it is truly a beauty! Congratulations #10962319

Stunning winner, Stacey, and I agree with Rona's comment!

Thank you for your lovely responses! As a matter of fact, I flew out to the Pennsylvania Water Gap to learn how to do this technique with Tony Sweet! Small world...
