    Hello Andrei,
    I just wrote you on g+ a while ago. Wanted to resend you what I sent you earlier. It was kinda appropriate that time because it is dedicated to my hope that me and my ex-gf would be together again.
    I am still a bit stupid at lights and shadows. It is so fu*king difficult to see it but I try really hard. I have a lot of mistakes there I am sure, if you could do some bad critics :)

    In the picture the hand and the lower half of the sky are mine. the rest is taken from your sources.
    Greetings from the Czech Republic, Martin.
    Ps – glad to be the premium!
