Challenge: Magnifying Glass (Basic Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II

Gee... It really stinks getting old. *sigh*

I lugged tripod and camera out into the pasture in the cold... set it all up... got the perfect shot inside the "other world" (not an easy task with horses doing their own things). Went back inside... loved it all... except... the old lady's wrinkled hand. Not cool.

So, went to the barn and found a glove.

Redid all of the first steps again. *sigh*


Post challenge: YeeeeHAW! I've been snowed in for ... ummm... seems like three years now... with six hungry men.

THIS is AWESOME!! Thanks, folks! It does make my current sub-5 score much easier to take. *grin*

Most Excellent Work! Kudos on the Encouragement in the midst of being a Young Lady trapped in a body that is less-than-complimentary to the person that you seem to be.

(Youth housed in an incommensurate body is a daily personal conundrum.) ;)

I like the colors and image but there is a bit too much of the background that causes distraction IMO. Still one of my top scores though
