Thank you very much. This picture was taken during a rainstorm, down at a nearby lake. The conditions were excellent that day and I got a number of nice shots. I'm happy you enjoy it. :)

Thank you. The original photo was rather gaudy with fall colors (even in the rain), so I wanted to tone it down some and soften it. I used the "monday morning violet" filter in Photoshop, but minimized the 'violet' part of it!

Welcome. Yes, the muted tone really works here.

Lovely tribute. The washed out colors really give the scene a wonderful feeling.

Thank you. It's one of my all-time favorite photos, with just a little softening filter applied to it. I'm glad you like it too. :heart:

Thank you very much. It's one of my favorite photos of all times. I took it several years ago, just added a few minor filter effects.

Thank you, Lori. I like this photo myself. Thelma's daughter passed away after a long fight with drug addiction. She was only 41...that's so sad. :no:

I just visited her page and see she lost her son-in-law about 3 months ago and talked about her daughter passing away. How very sad :(

I think that's why her daughter just gave up; she saw no reason to go on after the loss of her husband.

That's kind of weird, but I've experienced a few strange problems with viewing, too. Maybe it will reappear later!

They are getting ready to unload version 6 on us. I'm sure that's what is happening.

Wow Jean!!! This photo is so beautiful!!! :wow:
I saw her journal on the "Today Page" of DA.
And I was so sad when I read about her daughter... :tears:
It should be very difficult to go through it... :(

Thank you, Sandra. I cannot imagine how much pain she's in. I just hope she pulls through it OK. I don't expect she'll be visiting DA any time soon, either.
