Ah, a well handled shot, beautiful control, and I love the subject....if you were able to take four pictures the last one might end up in the bathroom (who was it from your country who took such classy shots in there?) or do you call it the loo ? :-)

@DULCIE: The loo, netty, carsy, small room - take your pick :-)
