Congrats Skip, when I saw that shot in the first round I was sure that it was most likely to be the one to come out on top :) Damn good shot...

And Dave - damn that is one high quality shot, bloody sharp!

There were a rather large number of great entries this time around... Made for interesting choices :)

Thank you all for the kind words! I snapped this shot with a friends T2i two days after reflection was named. I loved the shot as it tells me a great story about the guys I took to this shoot. I knew it was going to be a good shot but it was not my first choice. I had a shot planned with Christmas lights reflecting into a pond much like the one Bandman posted but the more I looked at this one the more I loved it. I am making up a little photobook for the five people that I took on this workshop and this shot is the main shot.
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.
