Lana, you know by now how I love the accidental shot with a disposable camera and all that, but I think this is one of the best photos I've ever seen. Is that grey at the end water or a bldg or sky? You got my vote.

Travis Erwin said...

Will do.

timethief said...

I've been and I've voted. Now I'm leaving you a HUG & hurrying off to my own painting studio.

JafaBrit's Art said...

You got my vote, all the best.

Hi,
I love art and this is a wonderful piece of work, and perfect for 'aquarel' style.

roadgurl5 said...

That photo is beautiful...I love how the foliage is framed by the tree trunks...anyways, I voted, looks like you've got 50 votes now and are well ahead! Good luck! :o)

Charles Gramlich said...

Very nice. And to think, I was there when you took this one.

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, all! I appreciate the support & kind words.

Wayne; That "white" is actually an illusion created by an opening in the underbrush, looking out onto more distant trees.

Charles; Actually you weren't. This is one from Short Hills in Canada, taken years ago. I brought you in my heart, though. :)

Natural said...

hey Lana, sorry for my absense, been thinking about you. that picture is absolutely AWESOME! i WILL go add my vote. nice work. will that be for sale?

Dave Coulter said...

Can do! :)

Lana Gramlich said...

NW; Thanks & no problem. Life happens, of course! It could be for sale, if I can locate the original photo. Let me know if you're interested (or know someone who is,) & I'll poke around for it. I think I know where it is.

Dave; Thank you!

Nature Nut /JJ Loch said...

Woot!!! I'm so happy for you, Lana. Off to vote for the BEAUTIFUL autumn pic. :D

Hugs, JJ

eric1313 said...

I voted, but you are crushing your competition 3 to 1 currently, so really, my vote meant very little.

And thanks for the plaintive/plaintiff distinction. Refinement can take a terribly long time to achieve, so thanks for helping to speed that along! Now to gracefully edit in kind...

And keep up the great work!

Barbara Martin said...

Wonderful photo of the autumn path! I can hear the crinkly leaves crack underfoot while walking in the vestiges of summer.

Thank you, Lana, for visiting my blog.

Lana Gramlich said...

JJ; Thanks much. :)

Ivan; Actually my competition will certainly be catching up over the next week & ultimately all of the votes only count for 25% of the final decision, but every little bit helps, so thank you! :)

Barbara; Anytime! Thanks for visiting mine, too. :)

Atif said...

Awesome picture.

Lana Gramlich said...

Atif; Thank you!

Avery DeBow said...

Makes me want to walk down that narrow path and see where it leads.

I was happy to vote for such a beautiful photo.

Miladysa said...

You're winning by a mile :D

Lynda Lehmann said...

Lana, I voted for you! You're way ahead on the number of votes! :)

Lana Gramlich said...

Avery, Lynda & Miladysa; Thanks, all! Voting continues for another 10 days yet, so we'll have to see what happens to my lead. Ultimately 75% of the final vote comes down to the 3 people running the site, so we'll see what happens! *fingers crossed*

Tabib said...

One vote from me,
All the best!

Michelle (artscapes) said...

I voted too! :)

Lana Gramlich said...

Tabib & Michelle; Thanks a lot! :D

Merisi said...

I clicked on once,
I hope I did it right!
Really fantastic image.

Ladybug said...

Voted! Good luck, Lana ~ this is stunning!

Lana Gramlich said...

Merisi; Thanks. Per the instructions provided in the post, to vote you click on how many stars you want to rate it. If you saw the number beneath the stars increase by one, it worked.

Ladybug; Thank you kindly. :)

Gretchen said...

All done voting. :)

Lana Gramlich said...

Gretchen; Thanks much!

ivan@creativewriting.ca said...

Wondeful pic.

But so late at night here.

I'll try to figure it all out in the morning.

I guess basically I'm technologically challenged.

Erik Donald France said...

Yowza, I need to get on it!

Lana Gramlich said...

ivan; It's very easy. I included the instructions in the post. No problem if you can't swing it, though. It's the thought that counts. :)

Erik; Don't worry, there's time yet. ;) *L* I'm not flaying (or filleting,) anyone who doesn't vote--no worries!

Rick said...

Hi Lana,

Just got done voting for your glorious photo, now I'm off to see if you have dragon art for sale!

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, Rick! I don't have any dragon paintings right now, but I do have prints of pencil sketches (which are typically more detailed than my paintings.) I'm on my way to work now, but I'll try to pop you off an e-mail with samples later.

Chris Eldin said...

I went over and voted---Yours is beautiful!! As always!!
I hope you win!
:-)

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, Chris! I believe the decision will be made by Monday. *fingers crossed*
