Michelle, Thank you. There are some marvelous photographers on this site and to be honest, it's all somewhat intimidating. I so appreciate your generous complimentary feedback. Your gallery is wonderful, I browsed it - Your "Wall flowers" was so sensitively and beautifully done! Again, thanks so much.

Ansel Adams said - "There are always two people in every picture - the photographer and the viewer." I'm looking forward to viewing the many Better Photo photographer's captures, as well as, having mine being viewed by them!

This image really caught my Mario, it amazes me to see all the umbrella like structures at the beach like that. I wonder if you could tell me which country you took this in? Very effective, and a strong image. Best of luck with it!! #9797388

Debbie: Thank you for you comment. "Ballet at the beach" was taken in Acapulco, Mexico from the balcony of my hotel. (about 6:30 am) Nothing special was added, just a few saturation adjustments using CS5. #9804781

This is the most wonderful photo of beach umbrellas! If I were a painter I'd love to paint art like this!
