Marvin, it just doesn't get any better than this!!! I can't even begin to tell you how absolutely incredible this image is. Everything about it is just STUNNING!!! We will MOST definitely see this one again!!! Mark my words!! #1825813

Lori S. Aschbrenner 9/11/2005 9:19:15 PM

Oooo! This works well, very well in B&W. You've done a great job in converting it. My favorite is still the color version (not that you asked), but I bet this is going to place at least in the finalists, if not getting one of those coveted gold or silver tags. Well done. #1825861

This really is a magnificent shot Marvin. I think all has been said that could be said. I like how you can see the soft texture of the leaf in front and how the one in back resembles a wing making her look fairy-like. Really great. #2076285
