wow! Where is this? #10362543

Mary L. Olson level-classic 10/9/2012 4:12:57 PM

Stephanie , the trees are in the Keukenhof Garden in the Netherlands. But the mirror effect was done in Photoshop. They are such beautiful old trees and the grass there is incredibly green. I actually desaturated it a bit!

Thanks for your feedback!
