“Dear Kial, Thank you! This is the perfect photograph for our room. I am SO happy with it and I love the metal feel. It is vivid and almost three dimensional, the bridges add a visual depth effect as well. The colors are perfect with our room too. I may order some more of your prints for the house, smaller ones. Maybe our clinic could be a gallery as well.”
