    The marvellous, rich colours, the symmetry and the beautiful background treatment all give this image a mystical quality that suits the subject perfectly. Very nice work!

Wonderful work presenting an amazing image, Pat. This is just beautiful. Love the subtle repetition of the costume colors and pattern in the background. Cannot even imagine how long it must have taken you to do the selection :)
