Two months later and still getting comments! Congratulations on your ribbon and on your special photograph.

Not my business, but I don't think Jmnuggy meant to accuse anyone of cheating, he was just asking the question. Thanks (Amason) for your explanation.

I love all the comments in Icelandic! (íslenska) :-)

All Icelanders are extremely proud of you. Obviously, you are a very gifted "beginner", but it is as important to have caring and supportive family around you and you seem to have just that. Don't worry about envious people, the better one is, the more one encounters such individuals. Just human nature I guess. Keep on studying the fantastic world of photography - I think you can still learn a trick or two from your old man!

Beautiful winner don't worry about strange questions they always appear. I'm sure the person didn't actually mean to be annoying but just phrased their question wrongly.

Congrats on beating my best ever score and I hope daddy buys you a nice Nikon D2Xs with the 12-24 AF-s and the 17-55 DX and maybe a 28-70 f2.8 and not forgetting the 70-200VR and a set of strobes a portable power pack and maybe a D200 as back up.. Make sure you get a Nikon then Daddy can't 'borrow' your lenses.. good luck in the future you are blessed.

No this is NOT an illegal entry!

Accusations of cheating against a nine year old.. how low is that!
You are at least making people think about if this is illegal or not.
More here..
You can be certain that I will not translate this for her! grrr
You should investigate before coming up with something like this!

This one is taken on the other side of the bridge in the same direction, closer to the steam stack:

And this one is taken maybe half an hour later about 200m (1/8 mile) from where the ribbon image was taken, and also in the same direction:
480902.jpg

Even this one has yet another foreground but the same steam stack, I took it 3 days earlier not far from where Arna Rós took her great photos:

wow... a good translating job waiting for me when I get home tonight from school/work... no she doesn\'t understand english good enough to read or write herself but I have been translating for her and the work continues... A great pleasant job it is.. She tells me what to write and I translate it for her to english (as good as I can).

Of course I\'m happy, she is amazing! And who wouldn\'t be jealous of her with a photo like this! We took some 2-3 hours one night in the end of February to take some photos together because neither of us had taken many photographs in February and both of us want to take part in all of the free study challenges this year. I have to admit that my photos weren\'t as good as hers that we took that night, we picked some 20 photos to choose from and then she picked out this one of this bridge.. yes she\'s talented for sure and we parents are very proud! Thanks!

i think that is a great photograph. there are a great composition and great colours. 10. I imagine the impact that the shot could had with an old man with the coat,the hat and an umbrella that walk on the bridge. perhaps can be useful in a next contest go to the bridge and wait....:)
