Well, a little more than one day to go and I must say I'm very surprised at how this is doing. After a bismal start (5.3) it has been on a steady climb (6.2 now). No hopes of a ribbon with the current numbers but I have received some wonderfull comments from some noteworthy DPC photographers. That puts a big smile on my face. Another 6.x I hope for my profile page. Thanks to all who commented.

Sorry, "dismal" start that is.

I love the lighting and the details in the little feather tendrils. I gave this one a 10. ;-)

Soft and light over dark and rigid. Nicely done.

Simply enchanting the way it glows -- like a picture page in a book of fairy tales.
