congrats on the POTD #6483109

Jay M. Schulz September 21, 2008

Every day I get the POTD and I usually open it and don't even scroll down to reveal the whole image before deleting the message from my inbox. I almost did the same to your image, but the title said 'nice hat' so I wanted to see where the hat was! I am SO glad I scrolled down. This has to be the best image I have seen as POTD in over a month (at the very least). It's not that the others aren't technically good, its just that yours tells a story. It stirs something up in me that makes me want to study every detail. Absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. #6483163
