Wonderful use of effects, and excellent composition!

Thanks for the memories Dale!
Mike #561691

Dale Ann Cubbage 5/26/2004 10:06:29 PM

Mike, what a sweet comment! I am so glad that this picture moved you to memories of your own children! To me that's what photography is all about, capturing a moment in time you never want to forget. And then letting it do the same for all who view it! Thanks again for stopping by my gallery! I'm a big fan of your work, and really appreciate you taking time to comment! #561734

Resubmitting, after some tweaking. New title, took off the green frame, and used dreamy photo filter and added canvas texture for painting effect. I was trying to take pictures of teh daffy's and the drive, but m son kept "getting in the way," Lucky for me this turned out to be one of my personal favorites! F4.5, 200 ISO, shutter @ 1/300 of sec.
