Default $1miilion for a photo??

Did anyone else see the headline on the front page of the website about this:

Photographer Peter Lik Sells Photo For a Cool Million Dollars.


Gee, and to think all these years I've been taking photos as a hobby and giving them away for free.

....I did see that. I'm wondering if the new owner would like some more reflections, some pretty good too, oh well.....late again and apparently $$$$$$ short.

Gotta be happy for Peter.

What was it that P.T. Barnum said.....

Un-freakin' believeable.

If I were the buyer, I'd want to remain unknown as well. otherwise, someone might have me committed.

Yup, saw this lest week. It is quite a gorgeous photo though. Definitely worth the one million dollars, if you can afford it. Oh, and the photographer (Peter Lik) has been selling photos for a while and I read here (http://www.petapixel.com/2011/01/13/...for-1-million/) that "Lik has sold over $150 million in limited edition prints to date." Still a one million dollar print is very impressive, to say the least. :-P
