LOL... thank you so much Max ;-) Something went horribly I guess, lol. This was last spring, looks even worse now!

Great shot Christine, great use of space. One of my favorites of yours, well done. #8148987

M.Christine Duncan November 21, 2009

Thank you Teresa :-) It's wonderful to hear from ya!

Thanks Debbie... I went back and really accentuated the tilt which I wasn't able to to when I first took the shot, and used the clarify filter to really make the brickwork pop a little, the light had been very flat that day. Suddenly just those few changes made a huge difference to me.

Dave, thanks! Once in a while it's nice to break out of the norm and revisit something a little different. I think I might wander the downtown with the cam again, I feel inspired, lol.

Thank you so much Bob. That means a lot! I consider you as a photog mentor you realize. #8151428
