Evy Johansen level-classic September 15, 2004

I cannot beleave I'm the first to comment....
Many congratulations on a well deserved win, Ursula! #168932

Dorothy Neumann September 15, 2004

Agreed with Evy. This is wonderful, and several winners had very few if any comments when first posted. Just goes to show you it's not a popularity contest. #781717

Janet Detota September 15, 2004

Way to go, Ursula! Wonderful capture!! #781959

Deborah Sandidge September 15, 2004

Beautiful, I missed this one before, congratulations Ursula!! #782428

Ursula I. Abresch September 15, 2004

Thank you, Evy, Dorothy, Janet, and Deborah.

Nobody ever accused me of being "popular", so I guess this fits the profile :) (just trying to joke).

I think if I were to comment more than I do it would help. I have been trying ... #782493

Dorothy Neumann September 15, 2004

Ursula, I didn't mean to imply that you aren't popular...although there are some photographers who get tons of comments whether or not their photos are great. There are also great photos that get few if any comments...and some of these are winners. You have many excellent images in your gallery! #782676
