Visited your gallery. Each work is greater than the other. #1802365

Kathy L. Pollick September 29, 2005

Carolyn. Beautiful photo. If you took this shot at the zoo, how do you get the all black background? I'm just learning about photography, so I can't do anything fancy yet. #1898613

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe September 29, 2005

Since I didn't have a lot of background, I just used the brush tool and airbrushed in the black. Not very difficult, or I couldn't do it either. LOL #1898953

Ann Bruynseels April 30, 2006

Beautiful shot ! #2707655
