What a beautiful and elegant lady she is Carol !! Excellently captured ! She definitely does not belong to your pole dancer troupe - much to much class for that Smile

Can't top Herman's comment, Carol, with which I am in total agreement.
Excellent detail and standing out so well against that b/g tone.
