Doug- One of the abilities to being so talente with DDR is that you can take an ordinary picture like this and turn it into a work of art as you have done here. I so enjoy the colors you have captured, the textural quality is just beautiful. Has a gorgoeus painted look to it. Superior DDR work my friend.
Have a great day and enjoy the upcoming weekend my friend.
