I think Carol has been giving lessons! Wink

You've caught it's details brilliantly, not easy one handed.
(When I'm in the same situation I stick out a finger/thumb of the hand holding the stick, and use it to steady the camera. This synchronises any movement and makes turning to the best light easier!)

I think it must have been a very delicate procedure to put braids like this in her pigtals !!
Excellent close up.

Thats a great close up shot Netta - in a developing, interesting portfolio.
You have an "eye" for spotting something worthwhile which others may miss.
Well done.

Mike.
