Not sure how this will do. She was pretty backlit so had to do more processing than I like. On top of that it is a kind of shoehorn, although I saw the triangles right away when I originally framed it. Her body adn wings make the triangles with the background which in turn highlight the subject, not sure if that will meet peoples interpretation here. We'll see.

Great capture and decent focus -- not the strongest triangle though.
