Thanks so much, Kafkami. Yes, I did have some fun with Hiroshige's Wave idea when I did this.
As for the contest, I'm hoping you win with your wonderful whale. :)

yes I love this - I love your framing patterns.
Also you have captured such a knowing expression, and kind of enigmatic I think -  on the woman
