You're welcome and I think luck has a little to do with it, but you really do have a great "eye" for catching amazing shots! :)

She's gorgeous, I just wish your photo would be larger. Still, it's an amazing capture. :hug:

Thanks a lot. Unfortunately I've had a few pieces stolen recently, so don't want to put large files out there. Sorry!

It's just that I can't get too worked up over the chance that my photos get "stolen".
I also find it difficult to evaluate or like a small photo.
But in this particular case, the picture, however small it is, speaks for itself. Congrats!!!

Thanks, but as a working photographer these images are both financially and emotionally important to me, and I won't let them get stolen by the few who ruin it for the many. Of course I have the larger files, and they're all 100% sharp, but they're only available to me, to artists and as prints. Sorry.

Many thanks for the compliments though. Much appreciated!
