    I went looking for deer today and didn’t even see a tail flashing through the woods. After a couple of hours, I gave up and started looking for a dogwood that wasn’t past its prime – struck out there too. In the process, I went past this little tree peeking out of the woods several times before I noticed it. Inasmuch as it is all I got today, I had to like it – hope you do too.

  2. If they were gold they won't stay long on the branches... ;-)

    I like it though, interesting perspective and composition. Very nice.

    Jonathan, Gale, Gilles -- thanks for looking and commenting. Maybe the day wasn't a total bust.

    I think it is a very nice shot. I also like how you created your border to match.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Thanks Patrick. I keep trying different approaches to borders -- sometimes they work, sometimes not. The process does make me think more about presentation of an image.

    Mike & Frits -- thanks for the kind words, but Mother Nature did all the hard work.
     
  11. How do you do the borders? I've been wondering about that. I have several pictures I'm going to get printed in various sizes and like the effect of a border at times. Just wondering how that is accomplished. My PP software is a bit limited I'm using PS Elements version 1.0 right now for the PP I do (Unsharp mask, cropping etc.)

    Thanks

    Hi Neal,
    There are several different ways to apply borders, drop shadows, etc. You should be able to do that with PSE, but I can't tell you exactly how -- I use Picture Window Pro for my editing. I think that, if you pose this question in the retouching forum, you should get plenty of help from PS and PSE users.
