Spring is here and the leaves on my Japanese red maple are back. Comments welcome.

I also agree these are gorgeous, your garden must be a beautiful place...

And agree to with the framing you do, I'ev tried to do something similar myself on a few shots, it really does finish the images off very well.

gorgeous shots, Hiroshi... almost too red! i love Japanese maples. i just wish my little laceleafwould come back, but it's still sitting forlornly in the front yard, with barely buds to show for its effort...

I agree - great shots, and the frame really adds to it. I need to figure out how to do that, and the signature! I've always thought that was so cool - what program do you need to do that?

Thanks ride16 for the nice comment.

To answer your question I use DIGITAL IMAGE PRO from Microsoft, it's about $70.00...I have both version #10 (the latest) and version #7 (no longer available) #10 gives you more photographic control but I find myself using #7 most of the times cause it's set up easier. Both programs have tons of bells and whistles and in my opinion give you lots of bang for the buck.

Thanks squirl,... the red is my fault...I increased the contrast, but neglected to turn down the red a little to compensate.
