Julie - this is a wonderful image. Maybe you should teach a course in Selective Coloring for BP! I'd sign up. This is the kind of work I aspire to create someday.

WOW!!! This is such a beautiful portrait, Julie, I have no words left to say after all the comments above. All I want to say now is that when I opened our 101 Homepage and saw this wonderful photograph, I simply had to run here and visit your gallery again. Your images are all so beautiful and delicate, Julie. I'm happy to have visited your gallery and I thank you for making me feel so much.
Congratulations!!!
Cesar
