      Steve--this is one of your best images! Very creative to capture the filigree in the bottom right vs. the starkness of the clock.

      Thanks! I was worried about the hand ending up in the center of the frame, but it was the only way to make all the other elements line up right. We'll see if the judge agrees with you!

      Got a 10 out of 15; they thought it was oversharpened and they didn't like the filigree (the swirls in the corner).

      Hey, COOL!! Thank you, I'm honored.

      Also, I noticed your blog seems to be about migranes and legislation. FYI, I suffer from Cluster Headaches, the male big brother on steroids to Migranes...and speaking of clocks, Clusters are also the only disease I know of that can tell time.

      I've had a couple of Migrane-class headaches, too, and they're no fun either, so right on with this blog! And the only medication I've found that seems to help some for my Clusters is officially really a Migrane one...Imitrex. So Go, Migrane Relief!!! :-)
