Nicely seen Ginnie! Is it me or does your border look oriental? wink
Ginnie Hart: Awww. I hadn't thought about that, Bisola, but I think you're right about the border! Thanks. smile

Lovely shot Ginnie. Like the amount of dof in this and the colour of the border highlights the background colour.
Ginnie Hart: It was a fun shot for me, Aussie. Thank you!
This is so beautiful. Delightful.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you so much, Michael.
Fabulous shot with reds and golds so rich and lovely.
Ginnie Hart: The colors really are rich, Mary. Thank you.

Looks quite uncomfortable, but very snazzy at the same time. Good capture, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: You know kings, Martin. They almost always look uncomfortable and snazzy at the same time. grin Thanks.

A wonderful detail, the dragon only looks so dangerous, but in this colourful holy environmont he has become a very soft animal, all things get changed!
Ginnie Hart: You are absolutely right, Philine. The bark is much louder than its bite. smile Thank you.
I like the out of focus beams as much as the dragons head.
Ginnie Hart: You're the first to mention that, Nigel, but I agree with you! Sometimes I look more at the beams because I remember what they looked like. Thank you.
