Dear mr ving,

We have decided to go with a pregnant Camel shot on holidays at Frazer Island sipping Pina's on the sand at Rainbow beach and no longer require your horsey photo. Please feel free to enter again in the future.

fingers crossed for ya David, dont forget your pic (even as one of only 16 finalists in the entire country! impressive!) will probably be published in the weekend australian magazine over the next few weeks - no small beer! - and maybe even the calendar - awesome result already, even without the category first prize of $5000 dollar holiday and dslr
