    Hi Mike, I came searching for this image in your gallery, as I had seen it submitted to Ace… it’s too late now, but I would have given an instant yes for this! This is so beautiful, it looks and feels like a Japanese style painting. Wonderful texture, and it looks as though that is gold leaf on those flower formations. Very beautiful find! ;o))

  • Thanks Tatum – glad you liked it!
