Sorry I didn't respond sooner guys... was visiting family over the holiday weekend.
Gary, Doug, Marsha, and Craig... thanks for those kind words. It was a fun contest. Everybody did great!
Craig, you're right. There weren't that many entries this time, which is probably why
I would have liked to see some entries from more of the regulars. Nancy said her idea was similar to mine. It would have been interesting to see her interpretation along with the others.
There's a lot of talented people here at RetouchPRO. I've entered quite a few of the contests and have never even come close to winning before. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying how skilled and talented a lot of you are. I think this particular contest was just closer to the type of work I do.
It has been fun and everyone has been great! I want to thank everybody for your kind words and compliments, and of course... your vote.
