Resort Umbrellas [Contest Winner Pool June 2007 ]
Uploaded: June 29, 2007 23:42:46
F5, 1/160, 150mm, ISO 100, Carribean Beach Resort, Orlando, FL. This is where my friend and family stayed on vacation. I took this from atop a bridge. I loved the bright, summery colors. Used a touch of Xero's Lithograph filter.

Carol Teal June 30, 2007Lynne, Mike, and Colleen, thank you so much for your kind comments.
Also, I am having problems getting to everyyone's gallery to see what new photos you have. I thought my PC was fixed yesterday, but it is back to freezing today. I am going to have to take it apart and try some different things (the process of elimination). Colleen, I didn't think of EOD; I entered it in the theme (Vacation). If it doesn't make it there, I will have to try EOD, so thanks for giving me the idea! #4459814
