Woohoo...thanks everyone for your great comments. This has been a nerve racking week watching this score go up and down....sometime .3 in a couple of hours. But I made it...yippee!!

BTW....I want to dedicate this one to the one member who had confidence in my work back in the early days and paid for me to be a full member. This ones for you. You know who you are!!

And also a big thanks to all the other members that have followed my work for so long now. There are too many to name...so thanks for putting up with my weird ways and giving me support and laughs. I hope to produce more ribbons for you all. Thanks maties!!

I thought I might explain that this image is of cotton crops that are just about to fruit. So they are in really good condition at the moment which suited this image beautifully. I was nervous about submitting an IR image as I know that IR is one of those effects that people either love or hate. I personally love IR and intend doing more of it.

Hi Judi, I am just so blessed, and blown away by this infrared image, it definately has the "WOW" factor, and now added to my favorites.

I see you are from Queensland as well, so I am so pleased about that, being a Queenslander myself.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful image, and all I can say is "CONGRATULATIONS".....for your first ribbon, a BLUE......

I like this photo, but the cloud formations don't work for me. I know it's not the photographer's fault, I guess it's one of those right place right time things. It's pretty though...
