Thank you all for the support and kind comments.

I think I may be getting too critical of my own work. I came very close to not entering this because I thought there was something not quite right with it.

Then I thought I was going to have to self DQ. Mid-week when I saw it was doing well I decided I better go secure the original. After a frantic search for the SD card I found it with the clean laundry in the dryer! The mini card was separated from the main card. I pieced them together, crossed my fingers and popped into the computer. Still worked!

Reach a milestone with this shot. Now all of the top images in my profile are 7+, yahoo!

Thanks again!

Great job and congrats on the blue.
I hate when someone has the same idea & title as mine and they knock it out of the park. Grrrrrr..... :)
Outstanding work.

Great shot, especially the 3D affect it has. It almost looks like the pieces were cut out and placed for the scene. Congrats.
