Just excellent. Timing was perfect, exposure, too. Luck helps, eh?

thanks, guys... i sentthis in to my local newspaper for a "reader photos" feature they just started today. the photo editor was impressed, and told me they'd use it, but i was expecting a small print, 2x3" or so like the sample photo they'd been running. turns out the feature photos will be about 3x5", on the second page, but because today was the first day of the feature, they ran mine larger, at about 6x8"... and right in the middle of the front page! :O there was a little paragraph about the new reader photos feature, along with a few lines of about the pic, where i took it, etc.it's not a huge paper, but with 47,000 readers, that's stillsome pretty cool exposure!
