G'day *Paula*!

My heartiest Aussie congratz for the 2nd PLACE award for this marvellous masque study.
The detail is exquisite, the model is beautiful, the colours are rich and bright, the lighting/exposure superb, the depth of field and sharp focus gives the image its impact and for the life of me I cannot pull myself away from that eye.
