Absolutely stunning work - has all the qualities of a fine painting and definitely one for the wall. Wonderful use of light and subtly blending warm rich tones. Lovely eye detail and coat textures.

Missed this one, Pauline......had no broadband connection for ages yesterday. What a fabulous shot and I am delighted for you that it has received such recognition.
Beautifully processed and presented! I have no such skills whatever, but can admire those, like yourself, who have and are so expert in applying it. Truly lovely image.....very well done.
