Bruce, thanks for the crits & insight. I'm working on improving my color theory, so your comments about the highlights won't go to waste. I've been fighting between getting more color in the light and getting more contrast, and I keep ending up pushing them to white. I'll work on it.
Walnut, thanks for the comments. Wanted to get something going on in the background, but I thought I was out of time.
And thanks for the coupla votes to thoras and haika! Being only my second week, that puts a smile on my face!
