Perfect composition and such an iteractive pose that shows off the beautiful details and features. Would stay motionless for a while as if to say, "this is my best side, make me look pretty will ya?" And with your skillful dof control, you have obligingly done so.

WOW, Val!!! This is positively exquisite! It could be in National Geographic, it is so perfect. Incredible selective focus and I love all the marvelous shades and tones of green. Even thought the detail and clarity is exceptional, there is still a gentle softness to the whole image - I just can't stop staring at it. Amazing, woman, you just dazzle me!
