Very striking. Love the soft subdued blue tone. What a creative idea to use a paper plate to reflect the light. Excellent work!!

Lovely image, Dolores! When I saw it, it reminded me of your color version of this portrait, but with one eye open. I like them both equally. Nice work.

Hello Diane! Thank you!! I have just arrived from a vacation on the Outer Banks in NC and just discovered your post. I appreciate your kind post! Have a great day!

Thank you, Teresa! Yes...I've been using a paper plate whenever there is one around!! Just happened to grab one in my pantry real quick when I was doing a macro out on the deck and have used them since. IT works!
