Foo Foto VOTE--February

February is over and it's time to vote!

We can't have a regular poll because there are too many entries for forum's poll to handle (which I think is very cool).

In no particular order name your three favorites in the responses or PM me if you don't want your vote to be public.
The vote will last one week. Winners revealed Saturday 7 March 2009.
Most votes = Month's Winner
Second and third most votes = Honorable Mentions

The submissions are wonderful, good luck everyone.

Thumbnail Review Images (in alphabetical order and they are linked back to the full sized image & if I missed anyone please let me know)

I'm not done yet.
I've got almost 40 of these to sort through.
It's going to take a few mins.

Thanks.

Note: I invited SingingSabre (and aintnoflatlanda) to revote if they wish because they voted before I had finished adding all the images.

But really there were others I liked as much. Court and Lodi's submissions are right there IMO. Very hard to chose 3.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
