Dedicated to all the "loosers" who didn't make it from april contest, me included!


Dan Holm May 25, 2005

I have a feeling this guy's gonna swim right into the Finals next month, Danilo!! ... EXCELLENT image!! The colors, contrasts and your composition are all OUTSTANDING! #253472

Jordi Delgado May 25, 2005

OMG!!! This is impresingly clear and well done, Dado!!!



Mata Patan May 25, 2005

Questa dedica me la sento più mia! Non hai fatto nulla????
Ora vado a controllare...e Milord??????
appena ho visto questa foto...mi è sembrato un dejà vu!!!
Ma come non hai fatto niente!!! #1393403

S J May 25, 2005're just too funny, Dado!! Hey winning and losing are part of this game....we just have to adjust with BTW, I too feel that we'll see again!! Good luck!! #1393421

Paul Michko May 25, 2005

LOL!!! Great composition and sentement, Dado. #1393543

Donald K. Cherry May 25, 2005

Very cool image, but I personally don't consider anyone here at BP to be "losers"! The only true losers are those who are afraid to try!! Everyone here is a winner just for having the courage to try and present their works in a public forum! Winning is too speculative and arbitrary!! #1393618

Paul E. Earl May 25, 2005

No losers here. You are a winner in my eyes lol. Great photo too!! #1393637

Stephanie Lyons May 25, 2005

What an awesome shot Dado! Spectacular! #1393674

Tom Andersen May 25, 2005

This is an incredible image, Dado, and your commentary is priceless! You will always be a winner in my eyes! #1393700

Tammy Scott May 25, 2005

LOL! Very neat image, Dado! I love the composition and the colors of the fish and the bottom of the bowl! #1393710

Dolores Neilson May 25, 2005

Hi Dado!! I love, love this! Very well photographed!!

"Loosers"?? You're far from a looser, Dan...please don't feel that way. Your work is awesome! I didn't do well last month either so we all get our turn. #1393791

Cathy Gregor May 25, 2005

Incredibly an incredible photograph. #1396964

Goshka G. May 25, 2005

Great shot, Danilo! And just looking at the sheer number of entries, it's just too obvious that there will always be a lot of so-called losers! There's always the next month though... #1396983

Margot Petrowski May 25, 2005

I love this image...the clarity is amazing!!! I was shocked that you didn't win big for April. I said to my husband, "Can you believe that Italian Eye didn't win???!!!" #1397471

Elisabeth A. Gay May 26, 2005

What a terrific shot; I sometimes wonder how the judges are able to make up their minds with so much great stuff on BP, yours included!! Call me slow, but I just visited Mary Robison's gallery and the penny finally dropped - Italian Eye, Dado, and Danilo are one and the same person! LOL
