outstanding New Year's photograph, Nicholas!

fabulous capture full of promise for us all in the coming year

your photograph also well illustrates why so many of us love using our outdated, old timey, hi ISO challenged, color perverse M9's with its supremely passé CCD

your photograph is humdinger, for sure but I believe this would be greatly improved by cropping to 8 x 10 proportion, taking off the right of the frame

I suspect you had this in mind when you composed the shot in the viewfinder (nothing comes close to RF photography for such work)

doing this places the subject far more favorably (gorgeous model, btw)

thanks again for showing this New Year's treat

gonna be a grand year!
