A very highly recommended a book by George Barr "Take Your Photography to the Next Level" 190 some pages, 8x10, high quanity paper! very nice I must say., soft cover. I don't take this as a "How To" book  I myself get more from looking a pic's than reading., must be the kid in me.  I really like the captions next to each pic, gives me a insight of the photographer Geo Barr, and how to improve on my own pictures.  I've had this for several weeks now and go back to it a lot for tips and…

Thanks for the comments Don. I agree with you, have learnt more since that was taken, unfortunately that old house has succumbed to the elements and is no longer there.

Thanks for the info on the soft focus. I have Piccasa 3 that came with Windows 7 pro on my new computer, but don't use it for editing. I have used the same effect in Lightroom 4.

Best regards, Dan

Hi Don, I really like your black and white work. You have a great way of composing the shots and getting great tones. I just returned from the eastern High Sierras. My wife had a reunion with some lady friends and I had three days to visit some great sites near Mammoth Lakes. I posted one black and white image and will post more as I get them processed. 

Have a great day!

Best regards, Dan

As you're probably aware, I only say the truth and only try to comment positively on images worthy of such. It's always a pleasure to comment on the work you do as it's always top notch.

Many blessings
