Didn't remember this one, honestly. Really not bad - late congrats on your HM. A bunch of equipment does make a difference, though.

This is wonderful! And... I love it that it reinstates the notion that all one really needs is natural light and a poster board... not a bunch of equipment. Oh well... and some good talent! Congrats on having them all!

Lovely image. Congrats on top 5. I gave it an 8, on the strength of the one, twisted petal :-)
