1) I am sincerely grateful to Mark Chamberlain (marktc) for looking at this image and finding it suitable for a Guest Editor Award. Also I want to thank Michaela Solway, Ken (franken), Jeff Silvers (cats_123) and Simon Hunt for their UAs!
I must say that I owe much of the improvement I have experienced to looking at the wonderful pictures my fellow EPZers upload everyday.
Thanks much to all.
2) Thanks so much for your encouraging comments and votes on Cristofué and my self-portrait (that Source categorized as a natural abstract ).
