    Finally!...one my photos places as finalist...

    On betterphoto.com. Been posting there for a while and finally got recognized with my half dome photo. Didn't win a prize–yet, but they're still judging for grand prize and a few second place winner. But just the fact that I got finalist is satisfaction for me.

    Smile Congrats Ray!!!

    Hope you win!! That was a certainly a nice shot of the Dome. Keep us updated....

    I've never entered any photo contest. I always think that they'll send the pic back with an MP3 file attached, and all that is recorded on the file is a bunch a laughing. ;)

    Keep up the good work!!
    Regards,

    Thanks Brian! hehe, that's funny about the MP3 file

    p.s. you should enter one of your lightning shots on this website. I think they are fantastic, and...you must might win a nice prize. I'm shooting for one of the first place positions...the prize is a tamrac bag. niiiice. Grand prize is a deluxe website...I don't need that.

    Why when I click the link do I see a slash page of a bunch of shots, and not yours specifically>

    My guess is because this thread/link are from 2004. Here is a direct link to the photo.

    Thank you very much. I'm pleasantly surprised to see that one of my older photos is still being admired! The lighting and conditions were just perfect the day we were shooting and I was fortunate to come away with this photo using what was the original Digital Rebel. I miss that camera!

    Great shot Ray! And I remember when you snapped it! What a fun trip that was. In fact, I have a couple very similar shots. The light that evening was great!

    Hope all is going well in your world.
