  2. Hey Joan - I really like these studies as they stand. Any chance of seeing a 'polished' photo of them? It's really the one on the left that got my attention.

  4. Highton-Ridley, thank you for visiting and I am truly complimented by you opinion. You are a master of black and white. Sorry to say my photographic skills are lacking, so this is the best I can do with my photos.
