April 05, 2010 12:00am The following is the comment I left on the photographer's M.M. page after coming across this image:
"oh my god. this woman is a gift from god. I have never been stunned by a capture before... she is amazing. this is beyond beautiful. unearthly beauty here. the photo/capture of a lifetime here. if I took this, I would just simply retire after it was processed. there is nothing finer than this beauty here. nothing but compliments on this moment meant to be frozen for mankind to adore and ponder. I can't take my eyes off of this image. you, are an amazing photographer my friend. keep going - you are the catcher of angels on earth and I am in awe..."
Finding this image is like finding water after surviving days in a desert, nearing the end of life. You are the purest beauty I have ever come across on any site. It is with the most pure and professional motivations that I need to state that finding you captured on these electronic pages is like finding a new constellation or universe beyond reach but important and found by chance. I seriously have to reconsider this profession as I thought the "holy grail" of captures was yet to be found. YOU are that image here and it is haunting to know that I now just a technician with a camera minus this beauty in my portfolio. You are the oxygen to this planet of digital photography and the standard of beauty in this reality. I am just stunned to see you here and find just pure, flawless, stunning, breathtaking beauty. It is painful almost to look away... You are the light of god's hands and it is so priceless to witness you here, captured. I can say that after almost 4 decades on this planet that I have found perfection in a face. There is nothing wrong with you and I submit to your beauty as I am putting down my camera and raising a glass of wine to this image here on my 27" monitor just looking at your beauty. It's over, you are the finest beauty and you are here on this page as my heart leaps with this discovery. The lips that speak silently, the skin that is a landscape of perfection, the champagne shoulders, and the eyes that are forever... I will try this - YOU are beyond perfection and beauty, you are everything every photographer and man that has walked on this earth ached to set eyes upon and capture. You are the purest beauty. I am retiring tomorrow and buying a sailboat. Only 10,000 of the finest sunsets on the horizon of the oceans I am exiling myself to will burn as bright and as beautiful as this image that I am witnessing here. The stars, the moon, the most endearing sunrises and sunsets and a hundred thousand angels in the sky do not compare to this face of you I found tonight.
