This has always been a beautiful portrait no matter how you presented it Jean but I think this is my favorite one because of the rich lighting, colors and the striking mood you've created!

A personal favorite, Jean, and one I am just delighted to see score. Congratulations on the finalist -- and thanks again for the tip which I've already used quite effectively (IMO) a couple of times.
