  1. Spectacular shot. Thank you for remembering my request. Well worth the wait. May I have a copy for my own personal use.

  2. It’s amazing. I wish I could do the same thing. I have a Canon Rebel XTi, but I have not really master it and practice to take a lot of pictures.

  3. I have taken a photograph with similar colors over the water by my home, but it’s not as professional as yours. The colors are very similar though…
