Hi there Kathleen. I have just found your site via other blogger links and I have to let you know I am blown away by your photos. And looking at the many awards you have, I am not the only fan.
I took a look through your favourites and when I saw this, compared to my own taken a few days ago - I see clear as day I didn't get anywhere close to the quality you have mastered - I have a long way to go.
I am pleased with my composition, generally but have yet to take 'risks' with my layout. Anyway I plan on taking a course this year to fully understand my camera!
I just wanted to pass on my compliments, your work is truly stunning. Kind regards, Beverley, UK.
