I didn't see the other one, but I sure
love this one, what a wonderful shot! #56069

Carolyn M. Fletcher 8/31/2003 10:02:29 AM

Both great!! #183407

Murry Grigsby 8/31/2003 10:15:23 AM

Covering your bases, Eh :0) Great image either way, Patricia! Guess which one I like the best? #183419

Jean Papo 8/31/2003 10:46:28 AM

I too didn't see the other one,but think this is GREAT, Patricia! #183443

Patricia Marroquin 8/31/2003 11:49:56 AM

Thank you so much, Ann, Carolyn, Murry and Jean.

Murry, yes, if I'm just not sure which photo looks best (a slightly buzzed version of something or the original), I submit them both. :-) And I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you like the unbuzzed version better. :-) It is true that the simplifier filter seems to work best with foliage. #183484

I admit to not seeing the previous release, but I sure like the look of this one.
Beautiful perspective, color and shadow.
Just a beautiful entry, Patricia.

Thank you, Bill! It was scary taking these shots. I was on a very narrow balcony, putting my camera through the bars of the wrought-iron railing. :-) #183578

Suzie Strasburg 8/31/2003 1:57:12 PM

Patricia I loved the first one....but I REALLY love this one the best!!!!Fantastic shot!:~)))) #183592

Ellen Peach 8/31/2003 4:01:03 PM

Great shot, Patricia... I like the slightly buZZed version better! #183689

Patricia Marroquin 8/31/2003 6:56:55 PM

Thank you very much, Suzie and Ellen! It's always so interesting when you ask for opinions on which version someone likes. You get such different answers. ... Murry, I'm still waiting to hear which version you, the buZZ master, liked better. :-) #183791

Darren K. Fisher 8/31/2003 8:54:59 PM

On a Maui, Hawaii, beach in early morning, shot from the 10th floor balcony at our hotel, November 2002. This is the same photo as one I posted a few days ago, but this one does not have the simplifier filter applied.
