Well you can upload files here that are less than 200k. I posted a file of 192 K with a 1200x964 pixel size. In photoshop I used the save for web and devices option with the optimize to file size of 195 K option.

Re: May 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

I saw this on Monday & I do alot of hiking & photographing... a couple years back I did some images of yellow wildflowers that grow along the water edge at a forest trial I hike... so today I took my camera back there & a small reflector (the area gets very little light) & grabbed a few shoots of what are some of my favorite things to see while I am hiking... glad I seen this challenge it was fun to photograph them again... I didn't read the link posted before I posted mine so I will go read it now & hope I didn't do it wrong... thank you...
