Yes, I agree with Tiia. I rarely shoot people and would be scared to try to get a shot like this. Awesome capture. :O)

Thank you very much, Tiia & Dr. Silly. I know just what you mean, Dr. Silly. I have been shooting candids for many years and it still makes me nervous at times. I am cautious and selective however, and do my best to be respectful of any given situation. Thanks again! *:)) JudyAnn #9992366
