Thank you everyone for your kind comments on the wedding series! I'm just trying to get over a viral infection of some kind, which has made me feel too 'down' to sit and post to everyone who has been kind enough to visit my blog. Aminus3 people are just so great!
This mule deer I spotted after we had just come back from a boat ride on the Okanagon Lake in Vernon. He was walking all the way up the edge of the beach, and I was afraid he would have disappeared behind this outcrop of land before I was within photo reach. However, he stopped here to graze a little, just looked up at me and then just went on grazing. The canvas and vignette effect on this one are filters in Nero Snapshot. It comes along with Nero 7 Ultra CD/DVD software. There are many programs within Nero 7. The recording software I had previously was not doing very well in Windows Vista so I purchased the ultra Nero 7 as an upgrade to the older one I had. Just over half price if you can upgrade from a previous version.
"Dear friends in the am3 world.
I would like to propose the publication of a couple of self portraits for Friday 28th and Saturday 29th of September. It can be anything you like, mirror images which is the easiest, reflection on a spoon! Ha-ha-ha, or even sketches of yourselves.
It will be great to see each other and to meet the talented photographers from all around the globe.
I have the greatest respect for the people that want but cannot due to cultural or religious reasons publish their image on the web.
For these am3-friends that want to participate, I kindly ask them to publish instead a picture of a place in their home town that they are proud of.
Please feel free to copy this text with your daily pictures so we have a great participation.
I am looking forward in meeting you on 28th and 29th September, see ya soon.
Kind regards Dimitrios".
Please go ahead and give me constructive criticism where needed! I am a bit out of practice at both taking and editing decent photographs - so help me if you can!
