I Need A Winner!!

Uploaded: July 02, 2005


I really wanna call this:
"Store Front Saturation", but seeing as I need a winner to increase my gallery size(I'm too poor to buy one) I used the above title for attention!!


Olivia Navarro July 02, 2005

LOL, the ol' direct approach, huh Daniel?! Maybe I should try this too! I don't NEED one for a gallery but I'd sure like to have one! :-)

Anyway, beautiful shot! Such striking color! #272371

Kerby Pfrangle July 02, 2005


Very much an attention getter.

Direct approach hope the judges are looking.

Very pretty in detail and colors.

Love your work on this.
