Jeff, Leanne, Linda, Bambi and Judy... Thank you all for your comments. I'm pleased you like the photo. I've about overworked the floor at this point. Maybe just one more photo in the next week or so with it... than I'll give it a rest. It is hard to resist. Best wishes... #1998142

I'll be talking to you later.. #2118619

Paul Conlan 11/25/2005 5:28:25 AM

Thank you Judges... I'm pleased you like it. The cadets don't normally form up one per square as in the photo... but did so in advance of an awards ceremony. It did create a very unique visual effect. #2118624

Robert Mann level-deluxe 11/25/2005 8:29:24 PM

Superb, Paul! I like everyone of the Citadel shots that I have seen. You have great POV in this and the design of the floor and the cadets in the individuals squares is a knockout. Many congrats on your Finalist selection and good luck! #2120718

Paul Conlan 11/26/2005 6:01:14 AM

Donna and Robert... Thank you for your comments on my photo. You did call this one right Donna! I'll be back at the Citadel tomorrow returning my son to school... but I don't believe the barracks will be open. Darn! I do have another photo I've not entered with all the cadets doing pushups in the same formation! That one may appear in the days ahead. Best wishes... #2121539
