This was taken here at a neighbors house..I used macro setting, 1/125, F5, ISO100. This was taken in the late afternoon and digitally enhanced in photoshop. I used Smart blur, curves and poster edges. Hope you all have a great day!! I am so busy with my husbands command...I am trying to get some comments done as well.
