Great shot, Murry. I like the photo it's self - well composed with nice natural colour. Also good ps work - pleasant - not overwhelming. #134268

Colette M. Metcalf 7/6/2003 6:52:20 AM

Looks like a great place to be!!! Wonderful shot, Murry! #134289

Murry Grigsby 7/6/2003 7:20:16 AM

Thanks, Judy, Bill, Leanne and Colette. This is actually the back half of a Bed & Breakfast. Fredericksburg has a strong Germany heritage with a lot of wonderful old buidlings but Main street (US290) is a zoo of tourists on weekends and holidays. #134300

Carolyn M. Fletcher 7/6/2003 7:21:48 AM

Oh, wow, wow, wow! I wanna go there!! Neat place!! Great buzz!! #134303

Murry Grigsby 7/6/2003 7:27:07 AM

Come on down and we'll go have some schnitzel, Carolyn :0) It's about a four hour drive from Houston--everything is so far apart in Texas :0( #134310

What a peaceful scene. Well done! #134331

Mary-Ella Bowles 7/6/2003 7:48:27 AM

What is a simplifier filter? I think I WANT one - I love the effect! (I have Photoshop 6 - is it just to be found in 7?) At any rate, this is lovely, Murry. Your subject, composition, and digital effects all work perfectly together. Nicely done... #134341

Charlene Bayerle 7/6/2003 7:55:27 AM

A wonderful shot Murry. I may, one day, have to come to Texas to see all this wonderful scenery there. This is beautiful!!! #134357
