The diagonal positioning works well and I like how you have treated the b/g, lowering it's impact and allowing one to concentrate on the subject the more.

Perfection for me, Brian - impeccable detail and wing patterning and another gorgeously textured background. Love it Smile

A beautiful presentation, Brian, all the admirrals I have seen have been very torn and tattered this year. Carol
