Susana Matos 5/29/2004 5:25:33 AM

THANK YOU a thousand times for your wishes and words. I guess I will keep on beeing late on my comments here in BP until september!!!! I have lots of things to do together with this exposition that will be quite big... but I am happy doing things I like to do!!!

About this photo, as well as those posted these last days, no PS work has been done, only normal one. The sky is the result of a thunderstorm sky and orange and grey cokin degradé filters. (my brother told me he thought this was PS work, but no it isn´t...) With degradé filters we don´t loose details of clouds and we achieve a better balance with light metering.

Cheers from Ponte de Lima, Su

MERCI Dominique, si jamais vous pensiez venir au Portugal, alors vous avez vous et Silke une invitation spéciale!! Su #565643
