Hello Annick

A super portrait.
Lovely natural colours.

Excellent pov and dof.


Hi Annick,
I'm seein' stripes again..Better cut back on this cough medicine ;}
Very nice portrait work mf. Wish me a quick recovery, feel like sh*# today with this damn virus I've picked up..

Hi Annick,
That piece of grass makes the photo so much more special. The amount of detail in the zebra combined with the pefect DOF made this photo a stunner. The square framing suits the photo pefectly.
