Cropped - Dodged & Burned - natural light -
I hope this pic does well but my best guess would be -not so well- since usually the ones I like don't do so great- I had fun post-processing this (just dodge-burn and crop but I really enjoyed looking at the pic at its highest res on my computer and seeing all the fine details that get lost when its compressed for web-ready/uploading) oh well... its up to the voters now! heh..
I would have entered this one:
but I like it too much to have it knocked down by voters - so I opted to put it in reaction club instead and put the one I liked 2nd best taken this month into the challenge

WHOOHOOOOOOOOO PERSONAL BEST! my 1st 6.+ ~Does the happy-dance~ :-D
