    Hi everyone!

Sorry I've been so on and off for the past few months; after my trip I started working 46 hours a week and taking 3 university courses, but I finished all my final exams and have time again. Looking forward to seeing all the new photos :)

Hi Lisa! This just popped up while I was on the page :)

I love the effect on this image. It is really interesting :) I also really like the composition. It all works really well for me!

Glad you're back Lisa. Like the composition a lot, and the color pallet is very pleasing.

It is a bit soft focus wise though, especially in the background.

I agree with the others. A very pleasing, well-composed image.

Softness and filter effect have my eyes crossing a little bit though.

glad you are back...how much longer will you be in China?

I love the artist feel to this . the only thing I would do is some selective saturation on the leaves to make them pop a little more. I forget what you use for your editing.

Thanks, everyone, it's good to be back. I took this photo from a boat, so it is a little out of focus. Here is the original.

Glad to see you back Lisa!

I think the natural shot works better for me in this case. The texture seems to add to the slight motion blur. Nicely composed shot.

Hi Lisa-this is really cool! I do like your first post. Is that some sort of mosaic filter or something? It works well with the bricks and I like it a lot.

Please help me Lisa. I am seeing a tree apparently growing in a wall but others here are talking about 'textures'. Your title also has me guessing. Tree I understand but 'aswan' not so much! If it is just a typo and should have been Aswan with an upper case 'A' then I am going for the city in Egypt famous for the nearby Aswan Dams on the River Nile.
So please confirm that for my aching brain and tell me whether or not I am looking at an actual wall or some sort of Photoshop layer.
I like this simple image Lisa.

Peter, yes, this is Aswan-I just don't like using capital letters very much, (out of a possibly misguided continuing tribute to e.e.cummings). I used an 'oil paint' effect on this photo which is what I think is being referred to. I have 10 weeks to go in china and then back to canada! it will be very strange at first, i'm sure.

You always post such interesting shots, Lisa. When you go back to Canada, where in Canada will you be heading to?
