webrunner5: One of the nicest pictures I have seen on here for months and it is from a P&S basically!
Wow, well done, very nice. Maybe I need to sell all my gear and use a 150 dollar tool to make it happen LoL.
Thank you for your interest in the work. I really liked your comment, so I'm willing to sell you my camera for $ 140. :) Only not yet sell, please, all of your gear. :)
RuthC: Congratulations, Nik2, on your well-deserved win in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge, with your very dramatic, inspiring landscape. I really like your picture of the field of dried weeds in the foreground, and the pristine white of the beautiful church. The wind-swept rainclouds above reflect the colours of the fields below. A stunning capture! Ruth :-)
I really appreciate your opinion, Ruth, thank you for it. Often your lyrical and quite professional reviews of the photos is better than she. :)
luirod: Congratulations Nik2, Great landscape shot with the dusty coloured clouds.
Thank you, luirod, for your opinion and interest in the work.

These guys are trained to go ceremonial step that is necessary for the honor. I see no ethical problems here.
