On points

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your commnets on my last upload and to NaturesHaven's for the GEA and Pete for the HC.
Also thanks to Craig Walker and Seaid for their UA again very much appreciated.

Ella had brought points with her so we had to try some classic ballet poses. Like the angles here.
I have added a texture layer as the background was very patchy due to some reflections.

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard
