Hi Everyone, I haven't posted anything for awhile. This is a photo that I realize should probably be closer to the birds or perhaps cropped more but I like the effect of the bare tree and the birds mirrored look, what do you think?

i very much like the mirror effect between the birds, but i do think it should be cropped a little closer...i think you could crop a bit closer and still get the bare tree essence- but the picture is really about what's going on with the birds.

yea.. crop in quite a bit closer, and then you will need a little sharpening as well, this ones a bit soft..

Thanks for taking the time to comment. As for sharpening... I wish! I don't have a good program to do that yet, using Photoshop 2.0 which is more or less just a place to put the photos. I do plan to get one as soon as I can decied which one!

Thanks for the advice, have been thinking about the 3.0 I'm afraid it's going to take me awhile to figure out how to use whatever I end up getting! If the 4.0 is the newer one, then that would make more sense.

My 2 cents- I got Photoshop Elements 3.0 from ebay for $35 (not a copy, actual disk). Does just about anythinga hobbiest would want.
