This picture has done very well in a number of competitions.
This shot has made it to the top All Star level in six challenges, plus has a Top 20 and two Top 30 awards.
Getting in the Top 20 in an international competition is pretty good. You are often competing with 15,000 plus other people submitting pictures.
And no. Those bright red thong-style panties do not belong to anyone. They were purchased specifically for the purposes of photography.
