Great lighting and a lovely portrait. I know what you mean about the mixed emotions when they pass their test. I have a whole new set of things to worry about now our 17 year old is driving too! J

Isn't growing up scary to grown ups?
(Fantastic portrait!)

It sure is, Stuart. But then again, you can't wrap them in cotton wool. You just hope the foundations you've given them are robust enough.
Thanks everyone for the comments and clicks. Another RC - blush!
