Thank you so much for your kind comment Sarah!

I perused your gallery -- you have a very creative eye. I loved Nature's Musical Notes.

Thank you very much Rod!

I looked at your gallery --terrific animal & bird photos! My favorites overall are "Last Cast", "Exodus" & "The Door" - beautifully seen & captured -- they are very rich.

This surely is a beautiful delicate floral image, well taken & named=^..^=
ps. Did you work out the flood filter? #7480823

Thank you Chris!

You have many great cat photos, but my very favorite in your gallery is "Ah, beautiful rain". That is a gorgeous image!

I did get a flood filter & it is fun! I am still experimenting with it & I am not sure where in my workflow to put it (before or after tonal changes etc.) #7480898

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
