The lighting is wonderful with this image, I really like it. Jackie, do you practice Japanese caligraphy? It is my favorite practice that I will take home with me when I leave Japan. All the best. #486630

Hi Curtis, thanks for the comment! I've done a little caligraphy, but am in no way good at it. It's definitely a great hobby though.

Very dramatic shot, Jackie! As everyone has said, the lighting is superb! #3071625

Thanks Pat! This shot was actually taken in a closet with a flashlight diffused by wax paper. I almost needed 3 hands for holding up the flashlight, holding the brush and making sure nothing fell over in the process. :) #3071732
