gorgeous lighting and frame indeed!! have you tried a b/w conversion? you might need a small boost in levels for the b/w, but that would be a superb alternate image too! faaabulous!!

@dj.tigersprout: I'm going to try it in B&W right now. Good idea...a fun experiment. Thanks for your input!

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Dulcie,
wonderful, this color, light and shadow. I love those shots. They express a great deal of naturalness and liveliness. Colors make happy and are very good for the soul. As the world and nature would look like without color?? Boring!! Dear greetings Christel
