You must be very proud of this one, Adrian. IMHO amongst your best ever. Love the light and rich golden tones and, of course, the stunning detail.

I love the interaction between the two, more than just a skipper picture, far more. Great title, too. I'd prefer to think that they were communicating about the weather or something.
