Sorry to be boring Chanty. But it has been said before and I must mirror and repeat all that has been said. The backlit image is a cracker. Beautifully captured and many congrats on all the well and much deserved awards.
Superb detail and colours allround.


Sorry I wasnt prepared to wear the wig. But hell I thought I had gone far enough with the sussies stocking and dress OMG!
P.s. the flake melted.
