In case you are wondering how images were selected for the magazine: each image was reviewed by a group of reviewers, those images that were highly rated by a majority of viewers were selected.

Those remaining were selected for publication and received this email.
Mardi Gras ends tonight at 12, I had visitors in town they left about 2 hours ago, trying to catch my breath, so I came over to my favorite coffee shop and opened my mail on FAA and just stood up and screamed.....wooooooooo hoooooooooo, First time in many years I did not have my camera, but enjoyed the sites and sounds of Mardi Gras but took a couple shots using their cell phones. So many good things happening in my life right now, and Friday being the big audition....Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket tomorrow night......wouldn't that be something thank Jannie, for the nice comment....
Thank you so much Scott, Odd, and Angelina, its great to be able to announce things such as this to such a wonderful group of FAA members, the compassion which is given to fellow FAA members of their achievements in there medium. Cheers, Michael Hoard
