I absolutely love what you were able to do with the light here. It really creates this ethereal portrait of your cousin. The light gives her this alien or divine quality, and it is truly breath-taking that you were able to capture such a photograph. I just love this piece. I hope you keep up good work like this in the future. I am in awe right now, and I only have you to thank.
This reminds me of an old friend I met in 3rd grade who moved away in 6th grade. It seemed like we were friends for so much longer than 3 years... Wow, that just kind of hit me. This is a beautiful portrayal of friendship. Wonderful photo.
