Wow, Gary. I love the comp, lighting, tone and everything else about this image. Nice work. #1512232

Gary R. Smith January 31, 2013

Thanks, Susan. We had some heavy fog this morning and while I was driving by, the sun came out and those shacks lit up like a Christmas tree. I was looking for birds and had my long lens on. Good thing because the shacks were quite a distance out on the lake. #10548049

Merna L. Nobile April 09, 2013

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of March, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile #10647611

Gary R. Smith April 10, 2013

Thank-you, Merna. Your message sounds sad. I hope all is well with you. I appreciate your kind comments and inspiration that you always give. #10647832
