Karu- I am hoping that this is for Mt as it sure is a beautiful and excellent entry. No matter what catagory, the picture is so wonderfully done. Love the composition, the tones are outstanding, sort of a soft sepia, lighting and clarity fabulous. I love the wood floor and the lines you captured. Tha angle of the shot leading us down that wall to where the lady is admiring a painting is incredible.

You have certainly caught a wonderful moment here and under those conditions made an excellent exposure.

A very sharp image from your great lens and steady hand too.
