Hello, all!
This is from Memory Lane, in my gallery. Do you prefer this one, the original or Blue Dreams?
Thanks for all your comments,

Mmmm Zabrina ... hmmm Note to self ... Abby Way = excellent nom de plum ...

well ... I was all set to be jaded about something ... but truthfully ... I think they make a trilogy ... they need a poem ... something about ... yesterday, today and tomorrow ....

My only piece of advice would be ... and this is personal pref ... the smaller the image ... the less glow blur you should use ... but just a touch less. I bet it looks incredible full size ...

I love the composition ... smooth transition of the path between thirds, path ending near visual center, and the symetry of the facing benches is perfect added touch ... perfect tension to get an imaginary conversation going between two imaginary people sitting on the bench ... obviously discussing love and what exists on the other side of the hill ... ah the ocean ... ocean and love ... really there's got to be a poem for these.

Tell me you will also be able to shoot this in the spring. In fact would this setting lend itself to a "four seasons" collection?

Very well done!

have fun,

Hi again, Pam!
Yes, I am officially Photoshop-addicted! :-P
So un-glow it a little bit?
All right, you've just given me an idea!
Well, this is on the southern coast of Newfoundland, and that's the Atlantic ocean in the background. Unfortunately, we live in Labrador. :-(
But, we might just pass through again on the way to pick up my brother from University!
This was taken in late August.
Oh, and Zabrina is my real name, but I'm hearing impaired, and can't hear Z's. So, it's Abby!

Ignore the image above, then. I put the new image in my gallery. It's entitled "Transformation of Time".
