The judges putting comments on this image page and loving your execution as much as the rest of us, is really an honor, Kathy. This image is absolutely stunning. Your composition is good. The backlighting is perfectly composed especially against the darker background. Your darkroom work is superb.

This should be the first image seen in your gallery until something better, if there is such an image, replaces it.

Well done. Congratulations on this well deserved recognition.
