Shame...looks like she's been out in the sun waaaaaay too long...! Love the detail and clarity of her life lines, gives her "character"! I feel like I can reach out and touch her skin, excellent texture! Congrats, Bob, on an "Eye-opening" POTD win!

Incrredible detail of the skins' different textures. Leaves me with a slight feeling of sadness.

Candice, I'm glad you got that feeling. That's what I felt when I was looking at her and why I shot that close up of her eye.

An excellent close up with great detail especially around the eye & wonderful textures too....terrific shot. Congratulations, Bob, on your 1st POTD on this site and I look forward to seeing more of them!
