Gorgeous!! The index finger thing is a little akward for me, but that's being picky. I love it! I saw the thumbnail, and I thought it looked like a Michael S. creation- I was right!

Thanks so much Kristine.. I know what you mean about the finger..LOL
This part of the shoot was about him painting the wall, not sure what this was but thought his face made up for it.

Hey Michael, I have offered before but lets try again. Do you need assistance holding the lights?! :)

Just being funny! Love the clarity of the photo, great colors too.
