Wow!!! Thank you so very much!!! I actually don't know what to say... I didn't really expect to win against this strong competition... I think I'll have a lie-down...

Many many thanks again, all of you!

Thanks a lot guys!

@zerro1: it's a pity there can only be one winner because otherwise I'd gladly share the prize with you. Your picture's just stunning, even more so because you're still a beginning artist.

Peter
