the open gate

Uploaded: April 02, 2005


re-submission ... a bit of PS editing, changed to sepia tone and then Picasa to soften edges of image
Taken in west central IL, auto settings, early evening, at the entrance to the barnyard of an old dairy farm

Kathryn, Isn't it great when an image strikes so many with the same reaction. The keyword to this is obviously "mood", it popped into my head before I read any of the comments. This is excellent work! Just one question; what the heck were you doing in west central IL? #1225094

Kathryn (Love) Scheet April 02, 2005

thanks so much Danilo, Wendy, Kathleen, Donna, and Steve for the great comments!

What a lovely photograph. It just says "come here and be calm". Thanks for sharing!
What is Picasa? I only have Photoshop Elements 2 so am wondering what program that is worked over in? #1228857
