Patricia Marroquin September 28, 2004

Thank you, Carolyn, Sanjay, Colette, Adilson, Joy, Allan, Claudia, Char, Karma, Wendy, Dan and Dale! What's interesting is that I didn't specifically do selective coloring here. I applied a certain sepia filter that created this look. And then used another filter for the chalk-like look of the water. :-) #810188

Murry, I guess I'm dense but I don't understand what you mean. :-) Do you mean that the color of the leaf looks like American cheese? :-) Here's the original, unaltered photo so you can see the true color of our California leaves. LOL! #811906
