Congratulations and such a beautiful image. The light truly radiates and the foreground detail, both are beautiful images on their own but together - magic.

A good solid image that is crisp, sharp and properly framed and composed - a technical success in every way. From an artistic standpoint, it has significant impact being richly colored with excellant detail in the foreground. This image would have worked as a black and white as well. A perfect demonstration of the power of properly controlled light and focus. A top ten image and a very strong contender for a ribbon. Well done.
