Lynne..the light on this is just fantastic. You have the perfect blend in the foreground as well as the background. The light from behind draws you through the picture and the mood you caught in this couldn't have been better. Fantastic work here, Lynne. #8736268

Lynne S. Fried 7/5/2010 3:42:38 PM

Thank you Kim and RJ - I appreciate your comments RJ about the light. It was one of the first shots I set up and probably the best one. My favorite for the day! Sometimes we just get one without much extra effort. It is nice to have the acknowledgment.
And, it is nice to hear from you. HOpe you are well.
