Lisa- Well you certainly racked up the gold for these creative and colorful shots of the smoke. As the judges have, I find them so well done, simple, yet with such fantastic design and color. This, I am sure will be another winner for you. Amazing work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care, be safe. #7347116

Kara L. Hendricks 4/3/2009 9:46:58 AM

I think this could be your next winner Lisa...

I really love this smoke series you did... And it's sad to me to see so many others doing a poor job at copying you this month.. I have seen MANY less dramatic ones in the EFP's for March...

It is near impossible to keep an idea for yourself..:)

Good luck, they are inspiring and I have NO TROUBLE spotting one of your superior ones over the others! #7367879

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic 4/3/2009 10:07:50 AM

Thanks for the encouraging words and kind comments!
Kara, I'm flattered. Thank you. But I can't take credit for the idea of capturing smoke, as others before me have done it, as, I'm certain, others will continue. It is quite an intriguing subject to photograph!
Smiles, Lisa♥

Kara L. Hendricks 4/3/2009 7:04:43 PM

Well, I know nothing is a TRULY original idea anymore, but lets just say, I have been on BP a long while and have never seen so many as there have been since your triple win last

Good luck! #7369215

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic 4/3/2009 8:50:13 PM
