    Thanks-I had never been until last weekend. Our friends who invited us over did say Diana Krall had a concert there. That must have been great. Beautiful area....

    Wow, you are fortunate to live in such a pretty place. We enjoyed an afternoon concert in Tanglewood as well, on top of the great countryside.

    I love the peeling birch. A fine and simple image. Not sure about the horseshoe - doesn't seem to be a particular point of clarity/focus. But the dead flowers and the unlucky horseshoe are a nice, subtle idea.

    Caimi - thanks for the feedback. I completely agree with your point on the horse shoe and dried weeds---oftentimes I find I am instinctively drawn to juxtapositions of differing textures/lighting/material, and the images I make help me remember the feeling that drew me to the objects or scene in the first place. However, the actual composition may not be as strong, and it is helpful to have an objective viewer like yourself point that out. Thanks!
