Lovely sky and silhouette, Douglas! The placement of the lighthouse is just right. I will be surprised if you don't at least make the finals with this one. What is it about lighthouses that get us photographers so excited? :-) #341760

Thanks everyone! Patrick, your waterfall pix are awesome! #341763

Man oh man, is this a beaut!!!!! What kind of filter do you use to get these vivid colors? Whatever it is, it's perfect! Great job, Douglas! #373662

Thanks, Jean! The sun was truly painting those clouds a beautiful shade of red. I just pushed the saturation a wee bit in PS.

Now, I'd like to know how you've trained those kittys to pose so well for you. You have so many great shots! Hope you're selling them. #373687

Jean Papo February 12, 2004

Even more amazing, Douglas! What time of day was this, and where's Point Cabrillo? Again, great shot!

For my cats, I've incorporated play and photography so they love it when I pick up the camera. As for selling them, well, I'm dreaming of that... #373778
