Thank you Mary Beth, Renata, Natasa, Melissa and dianna. I don't use HDR, haven't tried that yet. I used assorted layers here with various blends of light as well as a bit of "Luce" by L'amico Perry (plug in) for a final touch. I appreciate your comments! #6117087

frank w. degenhardt level-classic 6/30/2008 2:01:35 PM

Nadya- Good day my friend. What an interesting and fasinating approach to this picture. Love the composition and the way you took us right down that fence row. Really neat. That look that you give the picture is just fabulous. I don't know what program you are using but I just love it..
Definitions are fabulous and feature everything from the fence post, the barb wire, to the road, the trees, the barn, and that ominus sky, with such detail.
Stunning country colors that are dazzling and pleasing to the eyes. I just love the yellow and greens broken up by the other colors. Well balanced.
Sesational work
Have yourself a wonderful day, take care, enjoy #6125410
