Hi All,
I have been traveling for 3 months in Europe, mainly in Italy with very limited internet access. A bit belated I want to thank you all for your encouraging comments, and BetterPhoto.com for choosing my image as winner. I have come back from Italy with a lovely new portfolio - watch for new entries.
Thanks, Meggi #2950423
