This is my daughter. She usually objects to my photographing her but in a rare moment of acquiescence, I was able to take this one. #6735

Dolores Neilson level-classic 7/21/2002 10:21:36 PM

Thank you so much America, Peder and Kathleen for gracing my image with the most complimentary and well received comments!! Just arrived from a drive along the Long Island Sound and to find your delightful comments just made my day!! Thanks so much!! Kathleen...my daughter is so funny. She was standing by the monitor and reading your comment and she told me to tell you, "no"! I guess that strong hint was intended for me. Oh well.... (thanks guys!) #9892

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-classic 7/22/2002 7:23:00 AM

She will appreciate it when she gets over her "shy" stage, I'm sure. It's a great shot. #9925

June Marie Sobrito level-classic 7/22/2002 8:51:15 AM

Hi-This is such beautiful work of a beautiful subject. Love the effect you've created.

Donna R. Moratelli 7/22/2002 5:12:10 PM

Yes, she is beautiful.. Great work again Delores.Excellent composition and sharpness as usual. A wonderful piece of fine art. .. I bet she'll want more photos taken of her after she sees this one!! Print,frame and hang it with your other works of art.. #9959

Dolores Neilson level-classic 7/22/2002 5:47:26 PM

Carolyn....my daughter "shy"?? You would laugh if you met her...shyness is not in her vocab! She hates posing...I'm very demanding as a photographer...I only have myself to blame. Thanks for your time again, Carolyn!

Thank you June Marie!! I appreciate your comment immensely. This is my FIRST high key image..have just heard of the technique very recently. Still not sure what "high key" means but I figured out the technique using curves.

Donna...thanks for the gift of your time and comment!! As for my daughter wanting more pics of her now....well, I extended your compliments to her...she said, "uh uh...it isn't gonna work"! I do appreciate all you've said on this image that is special to me for obvious reasons...it's always special when it's your child or your pet. Your complimentary notes mean the world to me...Thank you!! #9960
