I decided to write my comments as a blog post mainly because I wanted to thank you all for your comments. I have loved this piece since I first blended them in Photo Shop. I can't begin to tell you about the experience we had during the trip to New Mexico. I wrote about it in my journal on my trip home. It took the whole flight for me to write my feelings and experiences.
Perhaps when I get this finished I will pull the journal out and condense it a little for a blog post.
About the photo, I did not use flash on this photo only overhead light. I will try it outside and see how it comes out. Thanks again for your comments and I will keep you posted on its progress.
