Shuswap Princess revisited! Ten years after our first trip together towards the West Coast of BC, this picture was taken at the Salmon Arm Marine Park on Shuswap Lake.
We are still without a car (which broke down on the trip) but I hope it will be ready (with a new motor) to be picked up tomorrow (12 hr bus trip).
I must thank my wife Christan for standing by me during this trying time, cheering me up.

Some cropping on the left side, levels and downsized.

Hy! Nice portrait

Beautiful! (Subject, and portrait.) Lovely contrast of colours, Christan vs the background; and as Hans has observed, wonderfully natural skin tones and details. Excellent work - both of you!

Hi Otto, excellent shot here of Christan, I reckon she's 'modeling' again, eh? TFS. The exposure is nice for the light, you've obviously been 'practicing.' ;)

Hi Otto! I like her pose and look at the camera. Linda's cropping and B&W WS is very appealing too.
Freddie :)

Excellent work Otto, I do so love that hair colour. Nicely composed and a lovely aura about the whole image. It is nice having a wfie who will support you. TFS,

Man, sure happy she doesn't look Like Alvin Lee.
Well maybe for the hair but then...
Excellent capture of our favorite princess :-.
:) later

Hi Otto,
Beautiful photo of a beautiful woman! In foreground, with her charism and beauty, she dominates her environment! bravo for the luminosity on skin tones and sharpness on the hair. Bravo! Annie

Hi Otto,
An excellent portrait of Christan, superb brightness with fine natural skin tones. Outstanding composition with the beautiful model of centre. Compliments for her too!
