I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.

Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases (and sometimes I will sharpen them) but I try not to use too much “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.

My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.

Effervescent. A nice splash for what can be a very gray town this time of year, no?

Lovely macro Bruce! The colors and details are fabulous and the droplets of water add a wonderful dimension to the image. It was nice to see this posting this morning since we just received 24 inches of snow overnight.
