    Congrats Serotta_tigrrrl!

    You have added panning to the list of things I need to learn. BTW, thanks for the idea for the Watermark photo. I would not have taken that photo if you did not mention it.

    Thank you, jjdrp. And congratulations on your two prize-winning photos! I especially like the reflections in Watermark–I didn’t know I gave you the idea. Thanks for sharing your photos. I am impressed by your titles as well as the photos themselves.

    Panning is fun, but it takes a lot of practice and patience–at least for me it does. The more I learn about photography, the more I find there is to learn.

    I was disappointed that I didn’t find you at tonight’s race. I hope to see you again soon.

    My race photos are on my flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

    Congrats to the winners.

    I wasn’t able to make it to last night’s race. I ran in No. 3 and No. 4 but I had a high school reunion last night.

    But I should be around for the Crystal City Twilighter in July. That’s the next running race in Crystal City, isn’t it? I’m also thinking about the Air Force Cycling Classic-Crystal Ride in June, but there are a lot of other run/bike/triathlon races going on that month too in DC and Arlington. Having TOO many options is a good problem to have though.
