WOW! Thanks to everyone who left me great comments during the voting letting me know you thought I was in the top 10. I think I broke the update button on this one.

Special thanks goes out to my models who had never met each other prior to this shoot. What chemistry they pulled off, eh? I'm so lucky to have natural models. You may recognize the male model in this shot from a previous photo shoot titled, "Come Out Virginia" for the "Odd Couple Challenge."

Excellent photograph and well deserving of the blue. I remember hearing some podcast about how you could only hope to ribbon one day. You did it - congrats!

Ok, the amount of congratulations is embarrassing! Enough already! LOL. Yeah, it feels pretty good to finally ribbon. Took me over a year to do it but hopefully it won't take another year to get my second. I'm already trying to plan my next shoot. So much pressure now. Thanks again to everyone who commented before and after. This proves you don't have to take a picture of something controversial in order to get comments. :)

This picture cought my eye immediately on the first page of the challenege entries. If I could vote, it would've been a 10. If I could vote higher it would've been a 20. You can easily sell it. I usually see such pictures on http://www.gettyimages.com, especially in TAXI collections.

If I could vote in member challenges, this picture would be a 10. Exposed well, great composition and your concept for battle of the sexes, and the way you showed this to the viewer is priceless. Had me laughing, and that counts for something! Great job, top 10 in my opinion.
