Hi Heather,

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my pic. It's very encouraging to get feedback from one's peers.

I visited your gallery and was blown away, and I'm not just trying to return a compliment, your pics are great!

I particularly love the crisp sharpness of your pictures, especialy since I'm a sharpness nut.

Thanks again, you've made me want to get out there, and try harder.

PS. If you have the time, I'd be pleased if you checked out my attempt at a photo website at

Norm, This is a work of art! Hard to believe you found something so eye-catching at a mall (of all places in and around NYC)! Very nice composition, color range, clarity and simplicity! I like the fact that the "box" created by the skylight on the left is not completed. It leaves something to the imagination and moves your eyes to the right where the focal point is located in the right. Good application of the rule of thirds. #12888

Thanks Craig,

I shot this on a Sun afternoon wandering around the mall.

I saw the shot and with some work with photoshop this was the result!
