Well, well Steve, I recognize this! Beautiful. I'm just beginning to play with Painter myself. Your gallery is super, and there are so many familiar shots! I actually live in Winston-Salem and just this morning have been bemoaning the fact that I feel like I need to venture out of town for some new ideas. Do you have any within a radius of an hour or so in any direction?

It's so funny that you saw this. I didn't put it anywhere other than to check out how the color looked, since I'm part of a class with Brenda Tharp, and the assignment is light. Obviously, January light isn't the best! All of my shots have been looking awful when I have uploaded them, and I'm trying to figure out why. I haven't had such a problem in the past, and have been taking classes for two years now. Ugh!

I really appreciate that you took the time to comment, and if even one person liked it, and it wasn't in the contest, then maybe have the courage for it to be one of my three. Here's another one I'm considering...right across the street from Winkler's Bakery.

Have you ever shot at Bethabara? It's much smaller than Old Salem, but pretty.

I'm going to go back and revisit your gallery often. It's beautiful.

Cindy, Good evening neighbor. I appreciate your comments. I live about 3 miles from Bethabara. I usually venture toward the Blue Ridge, either by 52 or 421 once a month. I'm around Asheville at least twice a month. Within an hour I would go Hanging Rock state Park or venture toward Pilot Mt. and East Bent. Alot of winerys are opening close by. I hope this helps. Take care #3816176
