Thanks very much for stopping in and commenting, SuSana, Barbara, Jennifer, Paul M., Evy, David, Jeff, and Anna! I do appreciate it.
Evy I have to agree with you when it comes to using an inverted black and white image. It seems that there are less and less black and white images used today. It might be because lighting in a black and white, and all the other nuances, is critical to the image.
Thanks again everyone!
With fondest Aloha,
