  • Thank you, but do realise it ISN’T a photograph?… I always think of the word ‘capture’ as a photographic term but maybe others (including yourself) use it in a broader sense…

    Owen- such a beautiful scene- remarkable work my fiend…the light is just so pretty and accentuates the tenderness in the Mother’s attitude toward her young one. Their markings are quite interesting Owen, just exquisite really.

  • Thank you Rosie. I actually played around with that bg quite a bit. It was a lot lighter in the ref pic and didn’t look ‘intimate’ enough. I think I’ve got the balance about right now. It’s a great pose, for which I take no credit, XXX
