Beautifully portrayed . . again, I like that you have left the colors 'natural' which has given the shot added reality.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks for your comment about leaving the colors natural. I assume you mean not highly saturated? I find that many images I see are more saturated than I like, but, they do seem to be popular with many viewers, on screen and in print.
