This is just beautiful, Ann - I like the capture a lot and especially love your desaturation and the texture you used. This should go on. Making it a favorite.

Nikki, I have to confess that I did not desaturate the image and the texture was part of the scene. The only thing I did do was put a French Kiss edge on it and reduce the opacity to about 50%, using the eye dropper and picking a brown color for the edge. This hacienda is very old and the walls are a work of art unto themselves. Thanks for liking the image. Ann

Thanks for filling in the details, Ann - even better that you needed to do so little. You couldn't have chosen a better background than the natural one. It's a work of art.

Thanks Nikki. When I was in Mexico, the tour leader, Jeremy Woodhouse, encouraged us to go without tripod. So I did. This can make some things easier and other things more difficult. Ann
