    Thank you very much! I can't believe this photo won. I had intended on taking a macro photo of a shamrock ( since it was March and my birthday is St Patrick's day too, lol ) in my yard, but we had a record snowfall that kept the yard hidden for the remainder of the month. This was a spur of the moment, last ditch effort that really didn't deserve to win IMO. Thank you to all that voted for it...what the hell were you thinking?!?:soapbox:

    Well, I did :801: ;)

    It may have been a spur-of-the-moment shot, but it was well seen. It's a juxtaposition of several elements and feelings: peaceful and menacing, light and dark, natural and artificial. No offense, but I think it's a much more interesting picture than a macro of a shamrock would have been. I'm sure the shamrock would be well-done and pretty, but it wouldn't tell a story and prompt the viewer to think about anything the way this image did.
