Great fall image of the Mill. This is not far from where I live. I like that you were able to get the ducks in the FG. I have to say you done very well with your exposure also. #542875

Jeana, Your comments are greatly appreciated. Your gallery is awesome. You have some of the best landscape photos. What type of painting do you do? Take care. #3587368

Jeana Clark November 14, 2006

I have only done landscapes. My talent for that came from my Dad, who painted indians. For now, due to no studio, I've have to trade the paintbrush for the camera. But I've got 2 paintings waiting in the wings. One of which I will finish for my Dad, who passed away in June. Thanks again for your kind comments and inspiring words! Keep taking those photos! I'll check your gallery often! #3587519
