Just wonderful, Mary. Did you "ortonize" that second photo? I like the effect very much!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Mary,

Fantastic!
Most people prefer summer, but as well has so many beautiful colours. I simply adore the flowers. They are magnificant.

Best regards
Asta

Thanks Jacob and Asta.

I "Ortonized" the first one (Orton Effect) but not the second. The second one I intensified the color maybe a bit too much, but it did look kind of glowy). No Orton on that.

Mary: I"m going to have the opportunity to be in Detroit for the day. Can you tell me the best place to go for photographs? I've already been to downtown, tiger stadium, rail system. Love it and fabulous pics. I'd like to photograph something between Detroit airport and the interstate heading to Ohio, shoreline, etc. the direction I am ultimately heading.

Your photos are always so stunning! Thank you. Jan

Perhaps it's me. But I can feel Autumn inching closer;very scary.

That yellow is fizzing not mellow. Outstanding.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Jan, what day? Gosh, I hope it wasn't yesterday or today, as I was away.

Jan--I live on the est side of Detroit and generally head North, so I do not go south and west that much and haven't lived here too long, and I don't know if you want parks or human type stuff.

If, from the airport you go west on I 94 and then south on 275, there are a series of Metroparks that are nice: Lower Huron, Willow and Oakwoods, and then Lake Erie. If you haven't gone yet, you can look them up online.

If you have time for a detour, and can go into town, see the RENAISSANCE CENTER, the river walk, and Belle Isle. Centennial park is right there, too, with it's small lighthouse, and ruins nearby to explore. And you could go see the Heidelberg project.

Thank you very much everyone else--I will be back later to make comments.
