A big thanks goes out to [user]Posthumous [/user]and his thread. If it wasn't for him and the group of people who continue to try to expand our tastes and views, I would never have appreciated this shot.

But I saw it and immediately loved it.

The tilt of the ledge did bother me, however. But I couldn't straighten it without cutting off part of the wings.

This is pretty much out of camera -- just cropped in from the left a bit.

Thanks for the comments!!!

The title represents me. Uncomfortable being myself, unless I'm hiding behind something. Then it makes it easier to practice soaring.

I liked this a lot and could not come up with the proper comment. Too many thoughts fluttered (!) in my mind.

LOL @ Don! LOL!

I love this, too. But, for future Wendy, you can rotate it and fill in what would have been there.

Congratulations on your RIBBON!

Call me sentimental but a flash of wing gets me every time.

I'm hanging you in my fantasy gallery.

Over the top, in a good way. I'm glad the wall is not perfect either.

The titled horizon bothers me a little but the overall idea of this image is awesome.
