    Hi Toni,

    I love that image – can look at it for ever. I think the placement of the “thingy” is just perfect, and the colours are so spot on.

    Congrats to such a well done capture.

  • Thanks. Glad you like it. :)

    Very delicately you have captured the stillness.
    The pastel colors are very appealing to the eye.
    Lighting and detail suburb Brava!

  • Thanks. ;)
