This is superb! The tones are warm and rich. The textures utilize the full gamut of smooth and texture without going overboard. The expressions and movement are natural. This is one of my favorite entries in the challenge. It would be difficult to find fault with an image of this caliper. I wouldn't change a thing. 10 from me.
