Molly Klaproth on the beach in Davenport

an archival image from 2004

I'd lost contact with Molly and she emailed me today. She's living in the North Bay and teaching. I went back and pulled up this image in her honor.

I very much like the photo for that it looks so dreamy with Molly's special posing and the enchanting view in bckgrnd, but i'm so curious about the reason you have overexposed the picture this much... waves behind Molly looks like wings of an angel!
