In MHO this is the best of the bunch. I love the drama added due to the black background. Very Nicely Done! #884538

Thank you Aimee :) BTW, I have changed computers from my laptop to a desktop with a nice flat screen monitor and hope that will help my dark/light issues :) I'm also going to try and buy a monitor color calibrator... #5687434

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
