Nice shot, Donna. I like how you've made the young one part of the image and that he/she is in wonder of the view. Colors are very complementary to the entire image.. well done. #1486383

OK - I just read your 101 message - it's your 17-year old daughter in this image... still "young" by my books. #10322807

An intensely interesting image, Donna; your daughter is practically transformed into a mermaid by her surroundings! Lovely. #10323536
