I always like to go against the tide, Donna, but this month I simply cannot. This is wonderful in every way and my favorite of your November entries. I live the lighting, the colors, the pose, the expression -- in short, everything about it and I am sure it will go on. Others that made the short list are Be Happy (she is sooo pretty), Aermotor (nice textures and a great theme entry), and Abundance of Life (can't get over the movement in the sea here). Good luck.
