The Nuns are back! It was -30 degrees celcius with the wind chill factor. My guys were not happy about being my models today. Thanks for the shot

I wish this was not basic editing. I should have reset the shot to eliminate some of the distracting background. It was just way too damn cold to ask my guys to do it again. I will post the outtakes and you will see what I mean about unhappy models :D

SaWeeeeeeeeet!!!

Thanks to everyone who voted and commented. This shot is the closest I have come to being banished to the garage!

Thanks again to my models :).

Thanks to everyone at DPC for making this such a super place to be part of.

heehee...very cute idea. It's kind of flat though.

After the voting:

Clearly I was wrong. And based on my scores in the ongoing challenge I don't know what I'm talking about.

Congrats!
