Congrats on your first ribbon. May there be many more in your future. Given it is only your second submission and your first placed 5th that is very likely. Keep up the great work.

Congrats, It was my first choice and while the blue is a great shot too, I think the awards got flip-flopped as this was the best of the bunch, but that's just my opinion.

Ahhh infrared. LOL. Before I read the title I was staring at the photo for the longest time wondering about how you could photoshop those colors in basic.

Beautiful shot. Love the composition. Makes me think of being in Narnia. :)
