  Greetings Gary! Am so sorry I am acknowledging your kindness late! I had read your comment when first posted then decided I would respond later and forgot! But I always do...better late than never! I appreciate very much your comment on my portrait. Many thanks for your kindness and efforts. I am behind on commenting as I've been away from the site for a few days. Happy shooting!

Hi T!! Thank you very, very much! I appreciate your comment. I have catching up to do too and will try to do that today. I havent' been shooting or submitting either! Many thanks!

  Speaking of responding late, this looks more like "untressed". Just kidding. This is a wonderful photograph Dolores. A real winner, in my book.

  HI Damian!! Thank you so much! I like mystery in portraits...actually, all subject matter if that element is do-able. Hope your weekend was a good one. We're waiting for a foot of snow sometime during the night (I'm on the East coast) and I'll be out there looking for photo ops. I appreciate that you took time out of your weekend to comment. Happy shooting!
