  You guys are so great! I am still in shock. I looked back over my gallery and images from when I first started at BP in 2004 and I can see the gradual and sometimes drastic improvement in my images. I owe all of that to all of you who have commented and given advice. And all who so willingly share new techniques. Thank you all so much!

  Thanks again to all of you. This has certainly been a trip for me. I am glad the judges were feeling a little 'lizardy' last month. I am certainly aware that there are many, many images from last month that were just a good or better. But it really felt good to see the email saying I had won. I had to go to the winners page to double check that I was not imagining it.
