I would give anything to understand what is going on in the head of the 9 geniuses that scored this a "3" or below.

Great shot.

Admit it Art, it was you! We know you have always hated Seattle. Ever since you arrived in that damn ship that now its on a stalk and blights our City! Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_436425.jpg

Brent congratulations despite those trolls!

LOL! Yeah that probably was Ken the alien trolling me from several secret DPC accounts J.B. ;-) Yeah, I really don't know what was up with all those ones and twos. It's not like I did over the top processing that some might just hate? I even specifically scouted out a new location so I wouldn't be seen as milking the Kerry Park view (which happens to be where I live). Things worked out okay anyway... :-)
