Actually, Bob Dylan's lyrics...(and one of my favourite's) GrinGrinGrin know you should always listen to your wife!!! WinkGrinGrinGrin

Quote:How many roads most a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

The answer my friend is with the wife GrinGrin A high contrast B/W of this might work. I like this one though Smile

The grass reeds are positioned well and show good movement and the DOF makes them really stand out, a superb image Herman.
Wonderfully simple. Love the gentle colours.

I did a mod where I

1. Reduced brightness
2. Did a bit of sharpening
3. Cloned out some odd bits, top left.

I hope you like it

I have to agree with your wife! This is quite lovely.
By darkening the background as Lonely oryx did, it brings out even more of the beauty.
24 Apr 2013 1:08PM
Herman! I just made a mod,but I dont know if it is better at all, maybe not. But I tried because you asked. I like very much to tinker in the photosop. Its crazy but fun. --- Best regards from Finland!GrinGrinGrin -- JukkaBlush
