    that’s beautiful Kasia. i also like the little bit of light in the background, sort of like a back burst
    to show more detail. very nice. cant believe the d7000’s raw files dont work with cs4.. that’s weird.

  • Adrian, thank you for your comment and the fave!
    The sunlight was reflecting a little off the black card, which is why I adjusted the contrasts but I’m pleased you like the effect.

    The RAW files work with CS5, etc. There is a statement about their cooperation on the Adobe website.
