great shot. i like the juxtaposition of the old, weatherbeaten house and siding with the fresh newness of the blooming flower...

Great picture there. I love the feel of it.
Hmmm apparently watching the neighbors through the windows isn't a big item in Petaluma. Up here in the Sacramento Valley we like to be able to see through our glass.:lol:

Oh, maybe it's a bathroom window, in which case they are probably doing us a favor.

Very nice photo.

Ok, I'm sorry. I was being a smartass.
I really do like the first picture. I think it would look good as a B & W or sepia tone. It would give it a very nostalgic feel.

You have a good eye for composing shots.

John, my friend, you're on an absolute roll. My favorite today is the Monarch (...or was it a swallowtail?) but this is right up there! I agree, this is a good candidate for B&W-ization.

(I took a look at the Leica mags... didn't order but the covers looked great. Thanks for the link! I'll keep an eye out for any old issues!)

Great shot, I love how you included the curb at the bottom. It really makes a good border for the bottom. I was playing around a bit with it in photoshop and I think I like it with increased saturation more than b&w or sepia.

Sepia does not work well.
It was overcast soft light ... yes a little more omph I AGREE.... !!!
For me I see as good photo shoot at times and i get a buzz
I THEN have to compose and get it right in the camera ... not alway's easy.
Point am making is you won't get a great shot panning around
some place looking thru' the camera.
You need to conceive the image with naked eye and see the possibilties.

this is a bit of ramble ... so apoligies.

Its how I WORK....
