Wow, I like the water textures you did get here, Debbie! #37068

Debbie S.

Thanks Claudia! I'm not sure what this is called, but basically it's a huge concrete dam with water falling over it creating these wonderful textures. There's a resevoir at the top and botton and mist and a cool breeze all around....pretty cool! ;>) #104774

Mette Vendelboe Allison level-classic

Good work with textures. I might have cropped the green a bit tighter! #104795

Debbie S.

Hi Mette...I think you're right...something about this bothered me after I submitted it and I just couldn't put my finger on it....Initially I was going to increase the saturation level on the tree, but I'll definitely try cropping it as well. Thanks for your input, it's always welcome! Look for this to be resubmitted tomorrow, I'd love your feedback... ;>) #104843

Shirley L. Carpenter

Don't crop to much off, just a bit as the tree limbs really give something to it ........I think is a Great Image Debbie....... #104852

Debbie S.

Thank you Shirley! I think I'll try cropping just a bit...I'll see how it looks when I do it. Let me know tomorrow what you think if you have a chance...The feedback is tremendous, thanks so much! #104854

He hee, Debbie! When I get a rare finalist spot, I invaribly think, why this frame? The BP people have a great eye for elements that I often overlook and I trust their judgement on these things. You just never know is right! It's a wonderful shot in spite of your reservations and is getting well deserved kudos! #114009

LOL Lem...I love entering this contest for so many reasons, not the least of which is the competition...but, I also really cherish the feedback, the inspiration I get from viewing so many incredible and varied photos, and the wealth of information. I have not only learned a tremendous amount about photography, PS (which I knew nothing about before joining), and color (which I also had never done before) but have been inspired to shoot every day, by deciding to enter an image every day. Sometimes I have a hard time choosing from a lot of images, and sometimes I have to really scrap to find one I haven't already entered!! But, knowing that I have to enter one a day keeps me looking and shooting and experimenting. It's awesome to be recognised, don't get me wrong...lol...but I have to take it with a grain of salt or I'd go nuts!! ;>)

Thanks so much Clifton, you are so niice to comment...I so appreciate feedback!

Murry, your continued support, kind words and helpful advise is invaluable!! It's because of generous people like you that makes this site what it is. Thank you and congrats on your many finalists!!

Thank you Rob...I'm so flattered that you like this image, you are so nice to take a peak! ;>) #114263
