Sanjay, thank you for viewing and commenting so soon after I posted this.

Janet, Roger, Carla, michelle lea,
I also thank you for your continuing support.

I posted a similar image in March. These images are from the same series of shots but the camera position was in vertical format vs. landscape format. Notice the different angle makes the color difference.
...attempt to add the image here...

Radiantly beautiful, Nobi! I recently learned that with blues and purples the amount of light, whether it is warm or cool light and the direction it is coming from changes the image. You demonstrated that perfectly here.

....Nobi...your capture of light slays me...this is no different...very well done, unique and it draws me to the image...powerful and beautiful. The black background I think really makes the colors stand out. Well done!
