this is so visually intriguing! #111481

Stanley J. Contrades 3/28/2004 12:41:52 AM

Stunning visually, Nancy! Just two little nits, which may be a little picky (it's more noticeable when the image is enlarged) ... the white dot above and to the left of the third green lamp, and the dot below the "N" in your initials in the right bottom corner. This is a wall hanger for sure!!!

Thank you, once again, to every single person who's commented here. I'm honored and shocked to have a place among the winners.

The thing that caught my eye first was that it was an overcast day, and the shadows would disappear and reappear as the clouds moved under the sun. Really an interesting sight.

I'm overwhelmed by the support... you're a great group of people! Thanks again!

Thanks once again for all of your kind thoughts and words!! This is a great community of photographers. I've strolled through all of your galleries (if you have one) and have enjoyed seeing and being inspired by your work.

Claudia Kuhn 4/17/2004 10:18:26 AM

Hi Nancy -
I've replied to your email 2 times and tried once thru your website and they all have come back as undeliverable. Then I thought to put it here where you can see it!

Thanks to you to for all your comments on my finalists. (yes, I did get 7
this month which was a complete surprise to me) I tried to email you from your website the other day and it came back undeliverable! (this one came back again too....) Sometimes at BP they pick pics of mine that surprise me, as I think ones that should be chosen don't get there. I guess that is true with each site, they choose different styles, etc. I have seen more of your work here at BP and think you have some great stuff! So big congrats to you for your first place!!
It's a big thrill that I'm still striving for here... one of these days.

Thanks for your comments on my "spring Reflection" As a thumbnail it doesn't look like much unfortunately, but that place was really increible with all the spanish moss and azaleas in full bloom. Don't really know how to get something diagonal in it though.
Have a good weekend.


Gary Jacobson 4/17/2004 11:51:58 AM
