    Ahmed Roberson said (21 Aug 2008):

    Thanks guys! I actually wasn't sure if I liked this photo, but I guess it's a little better than I thought.
    Maybe I need to be a little less critical towards myself ;-)

    Jim Robertson said (2 Sep 2008):

    I think I like this better for the night theme also but go with your gut on it. Here you've got lights on the land sea and sky. I especially like the moonlit clouds.

    wow...amazing! you should enter it in the "nighttime" theme. love it

  • Ahmed Roberson

    Ahmed Roberson said (2 Sep 2008):

    Wow! Thanks Jim. I really didn't like this photo at first (a little too critical of myself), but since I entered the other photo in Nighttime, I don't want to end up losing those votes and losing my chance of getting published.
    It's a terrible toss-up, but I'll know better next time :-).
    Thanks everyone.
