    I think this is one of my favorites of yours, but then again I love them all so much! But this composition just sings to me – blurry blue background with the dark red – kind of bring the bright greenish wave so much more out with the complemantery colors of red in both back- and forground!!
    So totally perfect!

  • Not only your colors and your style but your highlights and your mystery. Plus I see a woman calling out from the misty rocks
