    Amazing Photo! Rejoice and Cry at Once.

    I, as I'm sure others did as well, had an idea for a particular photo that I wanted to get for many months. A couple weeks ago, I was able to kinda make it materialize. However, I wasn't super pleased, as I saw much room for improvement.

    Then I got crushed.

    Mr. Josh Akbar picked up where I left off and hit a grand slam with this amazing photo.

    Wow. I hate him, but still, wow.

    I demand that you all click on that link and then click on the link at the botom that says "Nominate this Photo for the People's Choice Awards". (you can only do this if you area member of JetPhotos.net)

    If he doesn't win by week's end, I blame all of you. :twisted:

    Great shot Josh. It's been on my desktop since you showed me.

    Wow. Awesome. What time was that taken? In the morning I'm guessing?

    haha, I was taling to Justin Cederholm as he screened that shot last night. Excited that it made it in. I'm extra happy that it was another local guy that conquered that shot and not someone named Steve- lol

    Congrats, Josh! Brian, stop starting trouble :-p lol
