Thanks for the ribbon! I love it!

I can't believe I got suckered into leaving comments again that cause trouble after the fact.

One would think I'd learn my lesson. *rolleyes*

Thanks again for the ribbon. I really like this shot and am happy others did, too.

Such an obviously great picture (apart from the zoof that gave it a 1 ... presumably an Omnian)

How do you get the utterly white background?

Congrats! So I was fooled twice on the first 3 thinking it wasn't real. Still I gave you an 8 (my top score this challenge) and loved the shot. It would make a great promotional ad.

Dang! With a Capital "D"! You are getting pretty darn good at this ribbon stuff.

If the San Diego Zoom ever does host a turtle exhibit, they would do well to buy this image. Very professional looking, and makes me want to go to the zoo. Our zoo only has an Armadillo, an Opossum, and a Duck. ;-)

Very nicely done, and well deserved. SD Zoo should put this on a billboard, even if they don't have a turtle.

Of course I'd rather see the other end of the Turtle. But (no pun intended), your photo looks very professional and I think it will be in the top of the pile at the end (no pun intended again) of voting.

great 'ad' for the zoo - one of the best in the challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2009 02:32:38 AM
Very creative shot nicely titled. It looks like a stuffed lacquer covered turtle, reducing the realism but making a nice shiny image. I love the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. We've been members there for many years.
