Thank you, Joy.
I cannot say enough about getting up before the sun and then using 18% gray cards for both custom white balance and metering the light. Both makes captures so much easier and minimizes DD. #8436256

Beautiful work here, Bunny. It's my favorite of your March entries for so many reasons: the detail, the light, the tones, the presentation against the black background, and the composition. Well done. #8508474

With such raving reviews, Nikki, I should receive more than an EP. But, I seem to be stuck in a rut.

This is one of my favorites, also. Partially because it has enough graphic design to look good in black and white, as well as color. I love old appearing things.

Thank you for your comments, I thoroughly appreciate them. ~Bunny #8508638

Christopher, Usman, Patti, and Dr. S.: Thank you so much for your comments. This is especially sweet because it's my first finalist recognition, which I didn't think was ever going to occur. The feedback of people in PG-101 really helped. Thank you, all. ;-) #8548223
