    I think all of these are just beautiful. But I will have to say the one that really caught my eye was the 6th one up from the bottom. Very real and very detailed.

    My mistake, it’s actually the 8th one up. Somehow before I left a comment, two different pictures magically appeared. Think it must be my crappy computer. Kinda old. Anyway the 8th one up is the one with the girl sitting on the kitchen floor.
