Post challenge...
Well, it's been a long week for sure. I don't think I've pressed the update button so many times before. :)

This definitely came as a surprise. There were quite a few incredible entries that I thought would finish above 7 in this challenge. I was truly thinking that if I'm lucky, I might end up in the top 5.

Thanks everyone for all the votes and comments.

Some will like the high key, soft effect here - I'm not so crazy about it. Voted earlier; back to comment.

The title adds to the image of quite blur. Nicely done, although the highlights in the clouds are a little harsh.

i think this will be a candidate for front page when this is done.
i recall seeing something like this discussed in the forums as how you get the shot; curious if this is who i think it is.
