Well done John - it's that glow you get without compromising detail that is so compelling for me.

Always expected to be bettered here ;-)

Quote of the day. And don't things like this just spontaneously happen in Jagarland? Good stuff, seriously. Congrats.

I was about to type "yummy" when I noticed Timothy had already written that. But it is. There is something yummy creamy about this image. Congrats on the success of your plan to ribbon in every challenge :-)

I'm still trying to figure your secret. It can't just be that you have cobbles, and soft light, and wonderful characters who wander around holding giant bouquets of flowers upside down, past perfectly manicured planters and fine wood doors. But somehow you manage to add a perfectly performing cat at just the right point in time. His back leg aloft as the gentleman's foot steps down. I'm beginning to think you have this HUGE soundstage setup somewhere and you direct all these people, with teams of makeup artists, light guys, prop departments, etc. Because you've definitely used up more than your fair share of serendipity!
