    So beautifully done Pat! Love the angle and I’m not at all sure how you managed to get a clear background at such a busy festival but this looks marvellous.

  • Many thanks Georgie for your lovely comment and fav. She was up high against the sky so no problem with crowds. The background was clouds and sky.I thought I’ll make it B&W since part of her face was in the sun and there was too much shadow on the other half.
