Bunny Snow 4/11/2010 7:16:43 AM

There is so many wonderful compositional designs in this image and that's just for starters. The tonality, lighting, and timing is superb.

If an image, such as this, makes it as a black and white, it is a winner in my book! Your work and POV is very impressive, Patti.

Congratulations on your finalist and being among the picked for the e-book. #8525967

Patti Coblentz 4/11/2010 7:42:25 AM
