Duane Carter October 26, 2004

Thank you so much, Murry, Shirley and Charlene for your encouraging and helpful support!!!! Just for sharing, I had worked with the levels and couldn't get it to suite me. So I done something I never do, I hit the auto-levels, and bam, there's this blue tint in the shadows of the petals, I never would have adjusted to that kind of extreme. Glad, this time I tried it. #870469
