Usually when I make the infrequent log-in to DPC I'll check to see what you've been doing. What a hell of an entry. Congrats to you for your accomplishment (the finished product as much as the placement). Best to you and yours from Louisiana, happy 2014. Ray

very classic work, a trophy indeed. An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else's. J. D. Salinger

My absolute favourite, marvellous image and design, post mark and all. I hope the date on the post mark doesn't match the date on your camera, otherwise you're in big trouble.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2013 01:25:58 PM
I'd have reversed the small type out of the clouds -- I find the current color hard to read. Nicely-done postmark.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2013 03:05:15 PM
Winner! Nice work.

09/25/2013 02:53:22 AM
Brilliant work! For some reason looks to me like a Bear photo but probably way off track

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2013 11:57:23 AM
so with the post mark I'm gonna say this is my Bear... If this isn't a real stamp it should be ... what a beautiful concept and so perfectly executed!

My choice for the blue!
