Dado, in my humble opinion this not only deserved to be recognised as a finalist in the recent announcements but it truly deserved a place amongst the winners.
I love this photo and often show it to many of my friends via your gallery.
Just wanted to let you know my thoughts (and how disappointed I am that it wasn't recognised for the outstanding photo that this is).

Well, I'm so late to arrive here, that everyone has already said it. WOW! I gather from what I've read, that this is a re-submit. I can't believe this didn't win before. Sometimes I wonder what planet the judges are from. This is a winner, as you can read above, by all of the responses. Judges, Smudges, this is a class above them all.
