frank w. degenhardt level-addict 11/25/2008 4:12:26 PM

Karu- The curiousity of a child is a golden thing. Your framing is incredible, I love the black and white. This is the type of picture that is simple in subject, but has so much to say as to being artful, so much to say as to the curiosity of a child, the height of the statue is such that the boy has to look up to see it all. I love that difference. Lighting and clarity are remarkable. This is a true work of art that demonstates your talent and creative eye.
Phenominal work my friend. #6804166
