Stanley J. Contrades April 08, 2005

Thank you all very much for your positive comments and reinforcement for which I am truly grateful. I pulled this very quickly because it appeared very flat and lacked any sort of luster for some reason! Just a little boost, as Dan mentioned, in the saturation did the job and brought out the yellow from the overhead lighting. Donna, Mary, Carla, Sanjay, Judy, Paul, Donald, Janet, Tom, Tammy, Cathy, Dado, Wally, Jill, Stacey, Charlene, Jim, Karen, Deborah, michelle, bill, Shelly, Claudia, Ann, Kathleen, Dan, Marsha, Roger, and Stan, my heartfelt thanks and appreciation goes out to all of you!
