Oh wow didn`t expect a ribbon, let alone the blue one :) Thanks for your votes and comments. Hopefully i wont have to wait another 2 years for my next ribbon.

That oil slick device worked, but I stayed on your tail to the end! Good going. This one did not come up for me in voting, however, so I cannot tell you what I gave it.

quick scan through all the entries (thumbnails only) and this is my pick for the blue... will come back and edit if I change my mind, but great shot. Initial impression is this is the best of the best. Finally finished all 259... still my favorite

A bit too much colour saturation I think, feels like I'm in an alien world!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great, eye catching. Love the ground cover and the trees moving inward. Wish there was a person or something at the end of the isles of trees!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2009 05:27:28 PM
Very beautiful picture. The colors of the bluebells are nice. The symmetry is nice too - being able to look right down the center of all the trees is appealing.
