Connie L. Carpenter

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments. #96696

Elizabeth A. Zibas

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. #99761

Kelly Kujawski

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... #106237

Connie L. Carpenter

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. #106255

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 #106256

Connie L. Carpenter

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. #106264
