Has anyone tried to reach our host? Asking because I came in second last week and presumably will have to step in as judge for "Get Closer!" if nothing happens soon.

Sorry for the late post! I came home from work last night and conked out immediately.

This one was hard to judge for me, but:

1st place goes to M_6 for the LL Bean Watch.
VERY close behind is Maureen Souza!

Again, I'm surprised. I would have thought Maureen's or OhLook's. Kudos to both for great shots.

I'll have a new one up shortly.
