Cheryl,
I saw your recent comment on Shelley's photo and decided to visit your gallery. Wow... a Finalist. I'm impressed. And, as I am partial to classical columns to begin with, this image is even more impressive. Great effects and austere composition.
Steve

No! Really?? Where do you find that??
Very cool! Thank you for the info. Did I tell you that the day I took this was the day that they were all there filming that new show I am hooked on, The Journeyman? It was really fun to talk with the extras about this new show!

Oh,no no no... we just happened to be there while they were filming. I actually have a shot of the star of the show, although I had no idea who he was at the time... thanks for the info, Alex!

I love your use of sepia in this picture. It adds some "age" to the pillars you took the picture of. Sepia doesn't work for everything, but it is definately working for this picture. Great shot :)

Hey Matthew!
Thank you for your comment on this one!
You are right about that effect, it does not work on everything...
Thanks for taking the time to let me know what you thought of this one!
