    Thanks Anydy!

    Thank you very much.

    Thanks Jim!

    I was so surprised when I PP'ed them - I didn't want to take a flash, they would not let you use a tripod, the day was overcast, hot, humid, my FAVORITE kind of day - not! Thank you so much for your kind words.

    Fantastic shots. What did you meter off of the first one with such a contrast in tones?
