Patricia Marroquin April 27, 2004

Lots of interest here. The ferris wheel, the star-shaped lights and the people's shadows in the tent. Are those real people or made to look like people dancing? Well done, Nancy! :-) #505690

Nancy Grace Chen April 27, 2004

Thanks, Patricia! I didn't get a close look at what was in the tent, but I think they were some kind of set-up (not real people). It is interesting, isn't it?

Thank you, everyone, for the congrats! The new categories have enabled some of my older pics to become finalists... I've noticed that there isn't as much competition in "Special Effects," for example. Anyhow... thanks again, and best wishes to you all!
