Vrey nicely done Isabel. Photographers like you make me realize how much I still have to learn. In reality, I think that I will always be learning from light and nature. I think that the thing that makes this photo so amazing is how you execute your vision of the photo. Sure, the lightening and colors are exquisite, but the actually beauty lies in the framing of the photo. Your visionary eye is fabulous. This is definitely the best of the series. Again, congratulations.
