David W. Orias 10/5/2007 2:27:17 PM

Thanks Robin, Alison and Peter.

Peter, there are so many photos submitted, I just never want to try to guess what catches a judge's eye. But I like the shot no matter how it does. #4887264

Peter R. Hammer 10/5/2007 2:30:53 PM

David I agree with you re the number of photos submitted. Even seeing a small percentage of them is very hard. The main thing is that you like the shot as the judging is very personal and an image which does well in one competition can fail totally in another. I like this image very much. #4887280

David W. Orias 10/11/2007 10:31:45 AM

Very true, Peter. You just never know until the judging is complete. #4912460

Way to go David - two winners this month! Makes me want to take my lens out and get it wet ;-) #5137523

John Goyer 11/27/2007 3:03:40 PM

the congrats remains, but disregard the other comment - I thought I navigated to the recent winners and this shot came up - only after I commented did I notice that it wasn't as new as I thought! Haven't quite got the hang of this site - J #5137541
