Hi Lyns,

I think yesterday's upload was a dry run for this one. Yesterday was good, but this is in a different league. The toning, manipulation, pose, the way you look away from the camera ... all just add up to a very good shot indeed.

YOu should frame this, wrap it up and give it to your Husband for a present to make him realise what a lucky man he is.

Not sure I should be commenting on portrait work now that I'm a coveted landscape photographer though. Smile)

The hair is great and makes this shot. Good toning too. I also tried some lying down with spread hair recently but the hair effect is nowhere like this.
