This one is a classic beauty, Dolores. :) Is this you? It's about time for a self portrait, don't you think? :)

I thought the same as Kathleen. Is it you?

A very good job again. Your lighting and composition are great.

Greetings Kathleen!! Thank you so much! Nope...it's not me (sorry), but my oldest daughter. I do have a self portrait but I don't like it...(I hate pictures of myself!). I have it posted at a couple sites but I think it 's dorky. I appreciate your post immensely, Kathleen! Stay warm....here it seems the cold air will never go away!

Hi Mette!! Naw..it isn't me...I'm just too critical when it comes time to pictures of myself. She's my eldest...and we had a great time shooting. Thank you, Mette for complimenting my lighting (we were outside) and composition. It means alot that you think highly of my image. Have a great day!

That's the right title DN. That's what this image is all about. Wowwy, lady. That G1 is cool, ain't it? I just picked up a G2 at a bargain price and I'm headed for the Oregon Coast again, this weekend. I hope to come back with a few trophies. AGAIN, EXCELLENT WORK - you shooter you.

Thank you, BT. I think you'll do great with the G2. (my best feature is the flip out LCD) I'm ready for the Cadillac of cameras (IMHO)...the Canon EOS 1Ds (11 mps)....the body alone sells for $7000 and I still have to purchase an arsenal of lenses. Guess I will have to wait!
