I hereby accuse DM of cheating! That's the second time (that I know of) that you've used your kid as an entry! There should be a limit on how many times you can submit your cute kid/pet in competitions! It just aint fair :D :P

At the moment, I'm very torn between NaNoBoT and dM's rendition of this. I have my own version of the tranquility concept and it is hanging on my wall behind me as a type...a 15 year old enlargement of a sunset overlooking the Smokey Mountains, just on the outskirts of Asheville NC. Unfortunately I cannot find the original to scan it in. Even if I found it, I know it would not compete with the camera quality of the two mention (albeit it's a 35 mm and is typical of film quality)...but it gives me that inner sense of peace and tranquility every time I look at it. If I can't find the original for the scan by the time the comp is expired I'll take a picture of the picture just to show you.

Yeah, i have no problems seeing it now. Must have been my connection playing up again as it sometimes does.

Nice picture though, i dont see why you think its not the best. Very Tranquil, definatly one of the top few when the poll takes place IMHO.

This was taken at one of the bays on Biloxi Beach, Mississippi.
The beach isn't really that nice as the storm trains of the city dump into them, but there are some nice islands you can take a ferry out to.
