  Aloha Katarina,
I won the Details and Macro catagory with Heart Bubbles 2 -- and I don't have to be upset that some stupid pic got the grand prize -- because Old Lady and Cat is awesome art. It has all I think great photography should have: Of the moment, emotion, interest, beauty and technique. This image is a perfect choice as GRAND PRIZE!
