Thanks, Tiffany. Now I know why there are no bad spirits in any of my work. Hi, Sheryl. Good to hear from you. Keep finding those old cars and buried pop bottles. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Yeah, she's good for a hug now and then. You might notice, Tiffany, that the color of the border spilled into the picture--blowing the heck out of the sky at the upper right, among other things. I am uploading a corrected version which will surely appear one of these days. --Lannie the old tree-hugger

Tiffany Brook
We could start a new FOX reality show...." Good Photoshop Actions Gone Bad"

Tiffany Brook
And it looks like you have a great relationship with her. You seem to know the light and how she looks best. Really beautiful shot. Very nicely framed as well.Congrats to both of you!

Landrum Kelly
So my fix stopped the bleed at the top right but not mid-left. . . . Frankly, I don't know how that happened, Tiffany. --Lannie

Tiffany Brook
Actually.. The upper right looks good to me. But because you pointed out a flaw...I am looking at the black on the left side of the image. Is that part of the bg or a little enthusiastic fill work? I still love the image...regardless.

Landrum Kelly
I've got plenty of acts to audition for that one. If it can be messed up, I'll find a way. --Lannie

Tiffany Brook
I stand by my ratings. I once heard that in Japanese art...a flaw is intentionally left to allow the bad spirits to get out of the art. I actually told that to a customer once. It worked!

Sheryl W (Blue Mt.)
Pretty... a nice autumn image, Landrum.... warmest regards

Jack McRitchie
Hey Lannie, I like this one a lot. The little corner of blue sky is the perfect accent for the brilliant gold of sun through yellow leaves.

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Jack. It was a really nice and crisp fall day, and I just had to go home at lunch so that I could shoot a tiny bit before the leaves were gone. --Lannie

Landrum Kelly
Thanks, Mike! I appreciate that. I looked up and there it was. --Lannie

Michael Klensch
Give that tree a hug for me as well. She is a beauty and you did her great justice. Amazing light. Mike

Marla Marrs
lovely colors. I absolutely love this time of year. Thanks for your comment as well. Happy shooting!

My Only Maple How many maples does one need, after all? Well, at least it grows in my yard, even though these branches are in large part overhanging my neighbor's yard.
