I think they are both gorgoues, Janet! I like Swan Dive the best, though! #1538192

Kelly Abernathy 6/30/2005 4:04:41 AM

I like them both! -K #1538226

Janet L. Skinner 6/30/2005 4:11:29 AM

LOL, Carolyn! Dibe is my brain this morning! Sometimes it is better to stick with 'as shot'. Thanks guys! #1538279

Cindy Paquette 6/30/2005 4:16:51 AM

The swan 'dibe' is very unique! #1538351

Beverley A. Daniels 6/30/2005 4:33:41 AM

Beautiful colors, shapes and compositions.
Very well done, Janet.... either way!


Stanley J. Contrades 7/7/2005 6:28:20 PM

My vote is for "swan dive" because of its different angle of presentation, Janet ... though both are very beautiful!!

Playing around in the studio, 1/125 sec, f/13, 100 mm macro lens. Rotated 180 degrees. Couldn't decide which to post. The second I would call Swan Dive! What do you think?
