    Very, very nice, Susan. Love the blur and neutral tones of everything except the parasol itself--and what a wonderful parasol it is. The oriental design works very well with the background, especially those grasses. Very effective use of negative space--brings this stroll alive for us.

Thanks so much Nikki and Susie!

For some reason the photo popped up with a different url and Emily & Amalia posted under that one.

Now that photo is gone so I am posting their comments here. Thank you Emily and Amalia :-)

Very strange!

Emily E. Bem: What an artistic image! Wonderful comp, tones and coloring! BEAUTIFUL!

Amalia Arriaga de Garcia: Beautiful composition and DOF Susan!, Amalia

I love your PS work on this! It's amazing what you can do to change a photo. Love the sepia tone with the selective coloring on the parasol. Nice composition. Well done!
