This is just spectacular Stephanie. Great work.
I was in Maui a couple of years ago and went whale watching on a boat with 50 close friends and we spent the good part of a day in "Turtle Town" snorkeling in the nude with a bunch of sea turtles. We kept our distance but they would swim up to us as we floated along and a couple of times they would stick their face right in my mask. Just saying Hello I suppose... Its a day I'll never forget.
Your effects & the colors are so vibrant. Congrats & keep up the great work :) #1088557
