A great actress in a demanding role for an excellent portrait. Sarah Bernhardt is portrayed in the same role in her monument in Paris.

Your technical skills are what's amazing to me. Wonderfully exposed with just the right amount of color and yet one can still see detail in the highlights! Super job.

Re your question about the anhingas: I have no idea what they were looking at. I watched them for quite awhile (we were on the 8th tee box at the golf course) and they just sat looking in the same direction. Perhaps it was something the human eye could not perceive? :-)

Thanks for sharing... it's a powerful image.

I'm really quite taken by that portrait; the folds of the head mantle are lovely and exquisitely done.

Great plays need great players to interpret them...
