Ohmygoodness... I am shocked that my deer portrait won a BLUE ribbon! Really? There were so many good ones in this challenge. I'm very proud. Thank you!

This is as lovely an animal portrait as I have ever seen - soft as suits the subject but with incredible detail (I mean would you look at the fine hairs around the chin and the eyelashes) - and the background is just as beautiful as the fawn. Congratulations on the blue ribbon.

Delicate, soulful and full of character. Will you please take my portrait as well? Thanks for the kind words on mine. I have 300 more I can show you Hehe. Seriously, if you ever get an opportunity to come to Africa, Hwange in Zimbabwe is the best for elephants. The light is fantastic, and one may still manoeuvre around a dam to have the sun at your back.
