Woohoo! Thanks guys - I'm really excited as this is the first big contest I have placed in.

Rand and Don and Jim get a thumbs up too. Wetpixel members came out strong in the finalists for this contest. It sure gives me faith in our digital "shooting style." lol

Congratulations to Rand, James, and all the winning entrants.

I had considered it a win just to have been one of the finalists in this competition considering the caliber of photographers that had entered.

Thanks everyone for your support. :wink:

Thanks a lot, Kasey,

It is only very strange that on 05. March the D-Line 2/15 was updated for 2006.
Still I do not understand what is the situation with the EPIC 2005. Some weeks ago i inquired at Epic but have not received any answer so far.

Tell Julia I love her photo - She has inspired me to start shooting some really tiny stuff again. I'll post some sample once I get my slides back!

Did you ever get that Jobo? There are some on Ebay right now. Waiting for slides is just so annoying :o
