Thanks for the comments (and the Favorite). Glad a few people liked this. The white background (blown sky) I really didn't like and tried thinking about adding a vignette but didn't have time to even think about it, let alone add one, plus I didn't know how without Photoshop - I've never added a vignette. I tried a tint but it turned it into 'another image', which I didn't mind (see below), but wanted to keep the pure feel to this one. If anyone wants to 'share' how to add a vignette in something other than Photoshop (Paint Shop Pro, The Gimp or 'other') I'd be grateful. Here is a an out-take:

The off center positioning and perspective gives this some great surprise value, as my eye pans from left to right.

This is darling.

The background is a wee bit stark, but I imagine that couldn't be helped. Love the perspective.
