Received this email yesterday (regarding the image, above):
"Hello Ron Warren,
Your photo, “Carnival lights at dusk,” has been chosen by The Detroit News as a finalist in our Celebrate Michigan Photo Contest. Congratulations!
This means your shot is eligible for one of the 4 prizes we’re awarding when the contest ends on Aug. 30.
We will publish a story on Thursday that names you and the four other finalists selected this week, and we will include your photo in the online gallery of the finalists’ photos at http://submissions.detroitnews.com/2012/06/14/photo-gallery-celebrate-michigan-photo-contest-finalists/
