Not really plural - but Don Ho just died a few days ago. Ode to the Ho man. Threw the "S" in there - because it's the song, I wanted to, and I can. Kismet for this challenge to be occurring now.

Should be too plain for most viewers.

Congratulations on such a high score. What happened to the "Rule" of thirds? :-) I like the DOF, making right background more blurred.

Congratulations on the great shot and top 10. I find it hard to believe that a score like that didn't ribbon.

Woohoo - top ten and a 7.1+ score!!! Congratulations. I can't believe I didn't comment on this already, because I rated it 9 during voting. The colors, swirls, and reflection in the bubble are so pretty, and the focus is crystal clear. With a score that high, it's a shame you didn't get a ribbon.

Wow! Way to go Michelle!! This is awesome, and has the phenomenal score to prove it! Who'd ever think a 7.1678 would be 7th place! Most other challenges and you'd have a ribbon!
