frank w. degenhardt level-deluxe 11/11/2009 5:16:10 AM

Tess- A winner for the fall colors and the upclose look of the way a leaf changes. I am really impressed with the lighting and the effect it has on the leaf, making it almost transparent. Love the background colors matiching the colors on the leaf, but not drowning it out. Beautiful colors, love the sharpness of the picture and the rain drops. I especially love the veins running though the leaf and how they stand out.
Beautiful work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care. #8122085
