Thank you, everyone! I agree this month was tough. It's nice to see all the participation, though. Let's do it again this month!

Thanks, Bandit. Personally, I thought your entry was one of the nicest this month. You got robbed.

Wait, what am I saying?!?

I'm thinking of an idea for January's contest. It's going to take me a while to set it up, but I think it will be nice.

The combination of the color choice and use of water in that fashion with darker lighting to provide a rich contrast IMO put your pic over the top.

Very nice. PBP would even be proud, I'm sure...
