    Hi Leon-

    Just a quick note to say that this photo has long been one of my favorites from the Strobist Flickr group's 500K+ images and was selected to be featured as one of the reader photos in the upcoming Lighting 101 update. Meaning your photo will be inspiring many, many newbs every day as they work their way through Lighting 101.

    Awesome photo,
    David Hobby

    Impressed that you created this by bouncing the light from the ceiling. Was there much, if any post production? It's a spectacular image. (just noticing the catch lights)

    It's an excellent shot. But what I find so good about it is your creative thinking in getting her to lie in the bath and look up to the ceiling. I'm surprised your shadow doesn't show as you seem to be directly between her and the ceiling. Well done.
