Congrats on the ribbon! I don't actually like the tight crop (you know that :-P), but hey... it worked for DPC, right?

Have you ever checked out Wheels and Wax? There isnt a better resource on the web for action sports photography. You know the masses at DPC like your wake stuff, why not see what the photo editors and pro wake photogs think of it?

Hmmm. actually it was released as a single on June 1 1968 in the USA and was #1 on the charts for 11 weeks. :) (although it was not on an album until 1969 "Through the Past, Darkly"
