Yes, it makes a difference to my eye.

I was sort of surprised it was there originally, but perhaps I missed what you were originally showing me before the crop hackers got to it.

Very nice.

You just never know what's going to happen with submissions. The submission guidelines are posted, but in reality, they vary hourly just like relative humidity, temperature, or blood sugar levels.

Case in point observed first hand yesterday is as follows: I submitted several images to the mercenaries for review. First two were rejects from long ago which I hadn't bothered battling over. I'm usually a one and done guy anyways and that applies to photo submissions and women as well, when I used to give chase that is.

Anyways, both images, unaltered from their original rejected format other than changing the file name, were accepted first time around. Perhaps it's a New Years Eve thing to pack the year end stats, who knows, in which case I may submit a few more again next year.

Until then, best to all for 2013.
