RESUBMIT: I think this one deserves another look. It was selected as POTD, but didn't make it any further. It was taken during recent family portrait session. Converted to b&w in PS.

YIPPEE! So happy for you and this well deserved Finalist ~ it's one of my all-time favorites!!! It is puzzling why a POTD and not a Finalist the first time around, but it's wonderful to see it recognized all the same!

Also serves to remind us all not to get discouraged. There are sooo many very talented people whose images never seem to get recognized ~ Adrianna Province for one (not so subtle hint, LOL) ~ and should be encouraged to keep submitting! I get such a charge out of "discovering" new talent or the "emerging artist" ~ Dale Ann has obviously been taking unbelievable images for quite some time, and still gets better and better.
