Beautiful! The colors are terrific - I love the warm glow on the girl. It almost looks like a painting.

Wow, Mary, this is wonderful. The warm glow on her skin, and the fact that she is airborne..really add to the magic.

This is quite wonderful, Mary! Love the late evening light...and the fact that there are still alot of gulls in the frame despite the fact she is chasing them! Everytime my daughter even starts to approach them, all of them are gone! ENjoy your win!!

Yes, I told her to walk to them very quietly and when I would say go, she would run. And that worked pretty well.
