Oops, I forgot this was yours. Oh well. I gave it an 8 because it deserved it, not because you are a team member.

I guess I am missing something here :). Two people congratulated me on a ribbon, and you said you gave me 8 NOT because I am a team member... hmm... Judy, I would love us to be teammates, but last I checked we weren't... and I would love to win a ribbon with this, but last I checked I didn't... LOL

I hope the artificial darkness is not considered a new feature that was not present in the original capture.

You could always turn in DrAchoo for overuse of glycerin to see if that counts as a DQ and get a ribbon out of the deal. :-) Congrats on a fine finish!

Alan - this must be yours I think. Very nicely done. Bumping to an 8. Pristinely executed.

Cool shot - my eye is drawn first to the platform in the background, but its kind of nice how the surfer is almost hidden in the shadows.

A rare 9- even if I don't believe that's the moon :)....

it doesn't matter where or when - if the surf is up, someone will be riding it...

Wow...this almost looks photoshopped together. You did an incredible job of getting everything lined up and the surfer adds the right additional element to move this from normal to superb. (8)
