This is so wonderful. Excellent preservation of detail for such a high contrast shot. The ray of sun is beautiful and the doggy's pose and contre jour are delicious.

Hands down the best one that's popped up so far. I would seriously give it a 10 but didn't want to "cheat" since I know it's yours. The diagonal line of light leads us right back to her. The hint of back lighting around her head - perfection. I love the title too. Good luck Mary. This is certainly a winner in my book!
