Hi Joan and Diana !:) Thank you very much :) This is my son Mason and his virtual dog Max lol :) I used five images for this one. The shadows were a bit tricky. I like the cartoon look, but I still want it too like a photograph, I am really glad you like it. #5338035

paola A. Jofre April 24, 2008

Hi Patricka nd Lisa, thank you very much!!! :) I was very surprised to receive the email, I have been trying and trying to enter quality images. I was ready to give up this month :) It really makes me happy to know that judges like my work.

Thank you Lisa, I will tell her. Your comments will bring a smile to her face :) I try to avoid loggin on when she is around so she is not reminded of it ( she can milk it forever :) ). I think by next week she should be done with it. When ever she brought it up Mason would tell her "Ireland Dr.Phil says get over it " lol. They are a too funny, mind you she was not impressed :) #5835185
