5. I'm so pleased

that you are plunging in and participating and staying at it. Your entry is lovely to me, I especially love the road's dips and curves.
You are getting "the eye" - maybe have had it all your life.

12. Thanks, Mira,

and am actually on the road now, visited family in Ohio, and taking scenic route back to MD. Check out my posts in Ohio group, and will add more in Travel later.

I too was pleased with the dogwoods blooming on the road to my cottage, and as infrequently traveled, was able to stop for a few pics.

13. Amazing - it seems like old times.

It's been a long time to see entries come in so quickly!!!
And what a variety of beauties they are.
If you keep this up I will not need to be entering one, that's for sure.

15. I've never entered before.

I've had a digital camera for years, but have only taken stupid cat pics & family stuff. I recently started hiking & take my camera with me. My pics aren't as good as ProTrails, but maybe someday.

16. How much I remember the tentative and nervous emotions

of the first photo I ever submitted here! I know which it was, it was in a Seasonal contest of "Autumn" - long ago.
I am proud of you to take that step, and I find your photograph pastoral and very pleasing. Love the lines in it as well as the colors and that distinctive diagonal.
Congrats.
I hope you keep on showing us your work.

21. Hey, what's stupid about cat pics?????

I have a ton of them. Because I love my cat!

This is the second time that I have entered myself. I am intimidated by all the incredible photos that others can create, but I figure I should occasionally get in on the fun anyways. Some subjects, I just can't be creative enough---but spring? Sure.

17. Justiceischeap - just when I thought

I had seen all the photos of roses I need to for a while - you prove me so very wrong.
My jaw is still somewhere on this kitchen floor.

The sun and rose played a big part in that photo... I just happened to be at the right place at the right time.

22. Kicking and saying:

15 Submissions in the first day. I'm really happy about this.
None in the second, and I hope you are all either out shooting, (it's still Spring til the 21st of June) or ruminating on what to enter from your files of other springs.

Just keeping up some pressure....

I enter the color version of a photo that was entered in another contest in black and white?

26. I would prefer you did not do that.

It's an idiosyncrasy of mine, maybe, but I think a photo that has been in a contest has had its run, even if it is now in color.
Forgive me, I'm just being honest.

with what you have submitted. What a batch of beautiful specimens.
So, just like Oliver Twist I say "More....."
Please, ladies and gentlemen. Fill it up.

37. We are down to the last day - photographers!

I am grateful for the entries, enjoying them, but there are not enough of them. Please find a photo of "Spring" and let us have it.
I will start the contest tomorrow
as a matter of fact I'll start working on it now - so get your entries in today.
Thank you!
