Hi Cheryl! Thank you for your nice comment! Hope you are having a great start of this year! #5317594

I love the foreground,the middle and how the colors go from pale to the extreme red on the left side of image, then specs of red and little yellow on the right side in order to pull one into the sky and give great depth of field. Great image to view, spring in the making? #5321262

Steven E. Ray 1/25/2008 5:38:56 PM

This is a super composition Alex! Really like how the foreground pastel flowers are dominant. I searched the Help and could not find any new entries regarding new size requirements. Would appreciated if you could forward me any info on that, you have my email. You have a most excellent gallery Alex! #5396200

Donna R. Wageman 1/26/2008 5:45:24 PM

3D looking, as I view this image again ---would make a most beautiful notecard.
I request the same info as above from Steven, thank you. #5401307

Thank you Donna (again!), Steven and Lisa for leaving such great comments!!!

Um--"new size regulations" might not be a right word, but you are allowed to have up to 720 pixels in each direction now. I learned it from another member's gallery.
