Joannie, Roger, Mike, Flavio...Thank you for your wonderful comments! After a long 3 weeks stuck indoors with this kind of weather, I just couldn't take being cooped up in a studio apt anymore and ventured out in the pouring rain. #1203377

Nice gallery. This is one of my most
favorites. How did you set the foreground so bold and the background
so subdued...that's what I like about
it...such a nice contrast. I'm new to
BP too...welcome. #1548220

Martin Witt July 03, 2005

Hi Mary and Welcome to BP! Thanks for stopping. Well, the reason the background is so subdued is that it is pouring down rain. I had been stuck in a studio apt for 4weeks straight while it rained in NY and I finally had had enough. I wanted to get out and get some pics of the changing colors of the fall leaves. So, grabbed my umbrella and took off for this place cause I knew it would be a beauty. Had my umbrella in one hand and camera in the other. Glad you like it. Martin #1549247
