A very challenging posture and facial expression: as I said before, what an experience for you, Lillian, to be able to occupy 'his space' and still be able to concentrate on capturing this image, and a superb one at that.
Very well done, my friend.
Ronnie.

You do have a way with the boys, LillianWink He saw you photographing a rival and took umbrage. You mustn't play with his emotions...he's jealous.

Seriously, this is superb and that 10mm lens shows no distortion ever at this close range.Tongue
Just kidding, I know you weren't that close.
