Thanks so very much Kimi. I REALLY appriciate it!

Thanks so very much Dianna. Thy sky was pretty in the photo after the fine tune, but when I did the duplicate, I didn't apply screen to the sky, and when multiplied, it REALLY made the color's come out.

Thanks so very much Susan, I didn't even know they had a sunflower field there lol, Greg told me about it. Show's ya how much I get out! #4642289

frank w. degenhardt 8/13/2007 9:34:55 PM

another great photo friend. I have to agree, that sky just stands out so wonderfully without drowning out the field of sunflowers. Love the three dimension look of it with the field of sunflowers, then the shed, then the sky. Colors so vivid and sharp. Great job girl. #4644151

Nancy (Peaches) Harker 8/14/2007 10:44:31 AM

Thank you very much Evy! #4648983

Carol Teal 8/15/2007 12:08:49 AM

Peaches, this has to be one of my favorites! The sky is just gorgeous and I love all the sunflowers and the red building (what is that anyway?) divides the two and provides such a nice splash of color. I think the Orton worked really well on this one! There is supposed to be a field of sunflowers near Tampa, but I don't know just where and I am afraid he will have plowed them up before I can get there. The paper said a couple more days and they would be gone. I would sure love to go photograph them if I knew they would be there! #4649583

Nancy (Peaches) Harker 8/15/2007 12:28:39 AM

Thanks so much Carol, they are storage units, I was standing on the road side. #4649694
