Thank you so much Judy ! I really appreciate !
I love how my photo is depicted. When I took this photo I couldn't take it from another point of view as it is up high on a hill and on a private land. I had to zoom in to bring it closer and wasn't sure if the composition would be fine. I never thought of the point of view as described here, but now that I've read it, it's true, it emphasizes respect and makes it look majestic.
I'm so glad my photo was chosen, I wasn't expecting this at all ! It's like a birthday gift for me as my birthday was 10 days ago :)
Thank you sooooo much !
