Dale Ann this is wonderful, you need to get your work printed on notelets or greeting cards. Have you tried looking in photographic magazines for publishers who will pay for your prints?

Your work is astounding.

Amanda E. Radovic May 12, 2004

Dale Anne - its lovely and I also really like the mother's day one too, perhaps with the green in the back desaturated a little. I am currently reading up on building and 'marketing' my own stock library so that I can sell my images to magazines, papers etc etc. The thought of a little money coming in - all done in my own time - is extremely attractive. I'll email you with the name of the books because I agree with everyone that you could easily sell your images. #532970

Dale Ann Cubbage May 12, 2004

Thank you so much Amanda! Please do let me know the names of those books. I would appreciate it! #532984

Darren K. Fisher level-classic May 12, 2004

Dale Ann Cubbage May 12, 2004

Thank you so very much Darren! I'm glad you like it and appreciate your comments! #533152

Lisa Pereira May 12, 2004

Impressive floral shot, Dale Ann! The natural lighting is very good and helps to show just enough detail/texture in the flower petals. The presentation in light sepia tone really enhances the entire image. Well composed and beautifully captured! Excellent work! #533172

Dale Ann Cubbage May 12, 2004

Thank you for those wonderful remarks Lisa! I really appreciate you taking time to offer such great encouragement! #533188

Stanley J. Contrades May 12, 2004

Your work on this image gives it a wonderment as to what the story might be ... (?) I agree with Susan P. that it is nostalgic, though maybe not as meaningful as being with the one who has returned. Very well done, Dale Ann!!
Stan #533227

Dale Ann Cubbage May 12, 2004

Thanks Stan! I am so pleased that this image evoked so much feeling and thoughtfulness for those who viewed it. Thanks for taking time to comment on it! #533252

Teri A. Moore May 13, 2004

This shot is absolutely beautiful!! It almost has that "leather and lace" look to it and certainly makes one step back and visualize their own story and history behind it. Wonderful work - great talent!

Teri #533626

Gail Vitikacs level-classic May 13, 2004

F A B U L O U S!!! Love this one and I agree, you should be selling these!!!! #533936

Mary K. Robison May 17, 2004

"Bouquet in waiting"


Beautiful job with this photo. Brings so many aspects of what I would
consider a "Southern" type feeling. Nice editing. Nice to hit it right

Good Work - REGARDS - JSH

Thanks to John whose comment came in on another page!

kathy wolfe May 18, 2004

I understand the converting to a sepia tone...but how did you do this "history brushed color back in on bouquet"

I'd love to learn the process. Please email me at kadiwow@yahoo.com Thank you. #547467

Dale Ann Cubbage May 18, 2004

Kathryn, thank you so much! #548437

anonymous June 01, 2004

Beautiful picture. Like Kathryn, I also would like to know how you did the history brushed color back. My e-mail is bbsle@comcast.net. #571833

Dale Ann Cubbage June 01, 2004

Thanks so much Sharon! #571940

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


Taken in the shade on my porch swing. F2.8, ISO 125, shutter @ 1/315, shot in manual mode. Converted to a light sepia tone, then history brushed color back in on bouquet and brought opacity down a bit for softer color. Would love to know what you think.
