There's a wonderful prayer in the New Zealand prayer book that we say at Compline at Christ Church Cathedral every week. It ends like this: "It is night after a long day. What has been done has been done; what has not been done has not been done; let it be." To paraphrase it: "It's the deadline after a long and busy Georgie season. What has been entered has been entered; what has not been entered has not been entered; let it be." That is, until the Ovation Awards (I'm told the call for entries will be opening in another couple of weeks). Or next year, if your completion schedule was what was in your way.

It's been a very good and extremely busy season--we've photographed some amazing projects, seen some other amazing projects that weren't quite ready in time for the deadline, and we're hoping the best for all of you in your respective categories! For those of you who waited until the last minute, and for our fellow writers, photographers, and all others running similarly wacky schedules: you can now relax and catch up on the sleep you haven't been getting. It's going to feel weird tonight not being up until the wee hours putting finishing touches on photos, and I'm hoping to be dreaming about something other than Capture One adjustment layers, and not waking up in a cold sweat chanting "dusk images are acceptable as long as all relevant building detail is visible."

And may the best projects win!
