De Vine

Joannie Bertucci level-classic 9/1/2005 3:09:34 PM

Wendy, amazing textures, tones and contrasts in this presentation! Have you tried bringing just the color of the vine back into the image? Excellent composition as well! #304088

Wendy Stevenson 9/1/2005 3:15:09 PM

Thanks Joannie. And no I never tried that with this one - thanks so much for the suggestion - I just might give it a go:-) #1794308

Noel Baebler 9/1/2005 5:47:26 PM

Beautifully composed, Wendy! #1794658

Wayne Nolting 9/1/2005 7:20:18 PM

"Divine" and creative title to go with the subject matter. I like the rustic wood look and the composition of the image. #1794856

Kirsi Bertolini 9/2/2005 1:18:37 AM

What a title! This will win something somewhere Wendy! It just so darn well done.. I think it is just perfect this way but you'll most likely pull out something even more amazing with that desat. #1795271

Cathy Barrows 9/2/2005 5:54:50 AM

love the title...fab shot #1796061

Wendy Stevenson 9/2/2005 6:04:29 AM

Thank you so much Noel, Wayne, Kirsi and Cathy for all your generous comments:-) I'll submit the selective desat version after I get a chance to do it:-) Again, great idea Joannie! #1796112

Jason Gehrman 9/2/2005 6:55:20 AM

Dr Silly 9/2/2005 8:35:39 AM

Wendy, I think if this was in color it would be boring, this way gives that feeling of days gone by.

Dr Silly :0 )

Wendy Stevenson 9/2/2005 11:17:52 AM

Thanks Doc. I'm workig on the other version and you'll get to judge for yourself:-) This is really an IR plugin effect I applied - not just desaturation:-) The IR gives the greens that white look which I kind a liked:-) #1797169

Marsha S. Smith 9/2/2005 1:57:32 PM

Wendy, this is just beautiful. Wonderful subject matter and perfect comp. And I ALWAYS love black and white images. #1797555
