Paul D. September 17, 2010

When I saw the POTD just now, I thought "WHOA, THIS is a huge winner, what a great shot". Then I scrolled down and saw the GP medal! Well-deserved, superb capture. It's the person perfectly placed in the right third that sets this apart, in addition to the amazing light. And you picked the perfect focal length (whatever it was), because the background is just right. Too wide of a lens and the "grandness" would have been lost. Great job. Congrats!!! #8912887
