This is such a lovely shot and love your sepia treatment. Makes it more universal and timeless. Good to see some of your work again. But it's summertime and therefore a bit more time for BP!

I have never seen a green "Honorable Mention" medal. Is this for the free contest or the cash one? Just curious. #6079242
