Geralyn and Johnathan, thank you so much for the compliments. After looking at your galleries, I feel doubly delighted by your remarks. I was taken by the landscape shots in your galleries. Johnathan, you said in your blurb that you would appreciate advice on your photography, but all I can say is keep on doing what you're doing. Great work (by both of you)! Keep shooting, and thanks again, Jay

Janice, thanks for the compliments! I suppose it is only natural to view the galleries of those who comment on one's photos (possibly, even a courtesy). I was very happy to view yours! Beautiful photos. I especially enjoyed your macro photos (my favorite photography). You have a great eye! Keeping shooting! Jay #4613835
