    This is absolutely beautiful, Xandru! I just love it and do not want to reject it for Photography 101. I know you participate in the group and you know the rules about submissions needing some photography explanation in the description, so I’m going to trust that you do that after I leave this message and just go ahead and accept it. ;-)

    Just give me at least your camera, but if you got more on how you did the shot (not the post processing), I would lvoe that!

  • Not my intention to break the rules, my regrets. Its all there now.
    Lots of thanks for accepting the image and your kind comments
