I can see myself sitting there relaxing with a book (or shooting it myself!). Such a pretty scene, Connie!

Ooops, I spoke to soon now I don't know which Spring image I like better. I like this one because of the deeper colors. The texture of the bench also adds to the artistic composition of the image. Both images are equally beautiful. Exceptionally done my friend.

Connie..Hi...Were these colors tweeked in photoshop or did they just pop like this?...wow...I like all of your photos...doesn't seem to me that you are lacking any knowledge...thanks for the feedback on my newborn picture...

Hi Kelly... no color tweaking here. In fact the colors are not true but I guess it is due to the polarizer I used or something. When I hit autolevels in PS it changed the flowering trees to a more natural color but then the grass seemed wrong.. so I just left it alone. Thanks for the comment.

Kelly Kujawski  

what brand of polarizern do you use? My lab guys says never to use auto anything in photo-shop...maybe that's why the grass looked funny...so glad you left it the way it is...I also love the little yellow dandelions at the botton left corner

Hi Kelly... It is a circular polarizer... called ProMaster or something .. a cheaper version of what I was looking for which the store just happened to be out of. Thanks again.

So glad to find this one in finals but I wish the others were in finals as well. They are equally as deserving. I couldn't pick which Spring image I liked better. Just lovely Connie and certainly one of my favorites of the month. Congrats to you my friend.

Thanks everyone... I appreciate all the nice comments. Steve, I used a ProMaster circular polarizer. It is a brand I have not used before and it seems to warm the colors quite a bit.
