    I like all those red doors. Makes me want to repaint my front door.

    Thomas, nice set. :thumbup: (Always good when you get a few hours "free" :biggrin: )

    My faves are :-

    #1 the Rose coloured building
    #5 the brown door in the stone blocks frame (I'd have like to see the top of that outer frame in shot)
    #7 looking up the intersection of the stone blocks
    #8 the 3 red doors

    Was the grass really that green in #3? Our grass over here is more yellow/green at the moment, like in #4.

    Thanks Gary! Glad to be part of the real estate team who helps you "UP" the value of your home :biggrin:

    That is right, I remember you mentioning it in the past. Between the 2 of us I pretty much butcher Portland with my pictures. :biggrin::eek:

    Thanks savvy very much. To be honest, I much rather have my wife with me. While she doesn't want to have much to do with the camera itself, she has a very artistic eye in my opinion. Plus I am crazy about her!!:2thumbs:

    Ok - yesterday was warm but overcast so I tried to "Paint" with light! :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::eek::eek::eek: - not very good at it, but the picture was otherwise very flat. I can post the untouched version if you'd like.

    I now see that I way over saturated it, but looked good to me at that moment.:2thumbs:

    Here is the same door. zoomed out.
