I just happened to be practicing some strobe work in the studio since I don't get to very often and it happened to fall within the dates needed for this challenge, so I thought I would enter it. I had no hopes of a ribbon or anything so I am surprised this photo has done so well! To me, while it is good and I am happy with it, I don't think it stands out from many others so thank you all for your kind comments and votes. :) I was truly surprised.

Including Shez's comment, which is one of the last few she ever made. I feel very grateful to have gotten a comment from her.

I know I have not been a member here at DPC as long as some of you and despite me not being an active member in the forums, I do read them throughout each day (since I am behind a computer for most of my work-day) and I know there are usually debates on all kinds of things; from opinions on editing rule sets, to Langdon's negligence of the site, challenge suggestion debates and then news and world events etc. The one thing I noticed among all of that is how much Shez was loved and supported here at DPC and how positive her outlook on life was despite her hardships. I was always impressed and happy to be a part of this site when I saw so many people set aside their differing opinions on so many other topics, and band together to express their support for her. She will be missed.

Gorgeous portrait. Very nicely done. Wish the eye was a touch more in focus, but that's just being nitpicky ;)
