member since: 6/4/2007 You know young lady, there are many concerns when creating an image, such as exposure, clarity and composition. But when a photograph also tells a story, captures an emotion, and brings us into the photograph because we can relate to that emotion, then it is exceptional in my humble opinion. You have done that to me with this photograph. Motherly love is not just for mothers, the recipient of that love never forgets.
