  7. Jim,
    nice series, but the 3rd, 5th and 6th are really beautiful, I love the last shot with the wave in the background. I was browsing you pbase, this shot

  8. Beautiful series. I love the last one. Just a great backdrop of the waves and the tack sharp subject gets my visual senses going.
