Ditto all of the above! :) Great choice of a vertical comp! What is it about fence lines and sunshine with it's plays of shadow and light that just rivets the eye and keeps it moving along the entire length of the scene?? A beautiful "trip" for the eyes, Leslie! #9971959

Heather Loewenhardt 2/8/2012 7:25:45 PM
