Thank you again for all your wonderful entries in our 1st annual OPI Photo Contest. We also reviewed your comments and will make them part of our consideration next year! So if you can get friends to comment on your images that will improve your shot at an award. Two other tweaks, we will ask photographers to submit just one entry of similar images. If you have three great sunset images, please select the BEST one to post. And we will be limiting each photographer to 25 images maximum for 2011, so pick you best.
