You do Ansel proud. What wonders would he have created in the digital world?...we can only imagine.

But this image was MADE to be a sensitive black and white study, and you've done a breathtaking job of it, Ann. A favorite! #1391089

Thank you for the flattering reviews Michelle, Lisa and Bojan!

I'm not so sure if Mr. A would have approved of digital work or post-processing tweeks... but wow if he had, can you imagine what artistry he would have accomplished? Sort of mind-boggling isn't it?

Thanks again all! #9514062
