Bunny Snow level-classic 5/23/2010 6:03:50 AM

Beautiful composition inside and outside with the frame. Your DOF is fantastic!
I always have difficulty getting my background sharp and yet, keeping my frame sharp as well. But, I guess that's the beauty of a point and shoot.

Wonderful POV and capture, Nikki. Framing images is something I've always enjoyed!

Congratulations on another beautiful finalist. ~Bunny #8629969

As you can see, I was on a "framing" assignment when I visited this lovely château in the Loire Valley of France.
