Que gran foto!! Tiene una luz y un color precioso de verdad, la luz es cálida y la nitidez y definición son excelentes, todo esto unido a la pose que tiene y la composición muy acertada dejando las dos hojas de abajo le da aire por todos lados y el fondo limpio hacen de ella una foto excelente. Mi más enhorabuena, un cordial saludo.
