Hi Patti,

Great pics! The town looks like something out of Little House on the Prairie....yeah, I'm old! I really like the misty effect.

The view and composition of the moon in the first one is stunning!

Like the plant. Would make a nice Christmas card. They look like baby tomatoes. I'd like to see it a bit brighter though, it looks a bit dark.

Overall, really great :)

Mark

you know what, Mark, they all look a little dark to me...
maybe I will fool around with them a little, and see if I can
make them a little more appealing..

gracias for the nice comments...the moon was weird.. the sun was still up, and her comes little miss luna, over the top of the hill, I managed to get two of her, so I will post that one, too, and see which one shows better..

hi Patti, wow that moon is really big, as i scrolled down my first thought was its a large balloon in the sky until i saw the picture...lol..i like it. Very different. The moons a balloon. :) (David Niven, must have thought the same at one point, naming an autobiography with that as the title.)oops going off the track a bit there lol :D
In picture 2 the mistiness and shadows gives it a spooky feel,a close encounters of third kind , or a setting you read of in a Steven King novel.
The red berries.........................berry berry nice, we have them in the uk and at the moment many of them are bright orange as well as red, giving the greenery touches of fire. regards sue

There's something I really love about that second image. My eye keeps flicking back and forth between the exterior, and the reflected view back into the room. It really does feel haunted!

Lovely stuff.
