Sharon Day August 27, 2004

Fantastic image, Murry!! Belated congratulations. Your gallery is awesome and I don't use that word often! I was just viewing an image by Dorothy Neumann of a duck where you had explained the fine art of sharpening. Everything I've uploaded has looked soft to me and I really appreciated the advice you gave Dorothy. Sounds good and I'm hopeful this will resolve my problems too. My images are ok until I upload them and I've been wondering what the problem is. Great job on all your photos! #739876

Kathleen K. Parker level-deluxe September 10, 2004
