Thank all of you for leaving such great comments and asking terrific questions regarding my photography. I often don't get a chance to respond. Here goes:
1. The tree photo- Sadly, the tree is dead. It will not turn green any time soon, unless you count moss!
2. The abandoned house- It is located near the Rotterdam Mall in New York.
3. The filters used? I'm terrible at writing down the filters, I simply experiment until I find something fun. I have been using multiple layers, adding several filters to one image.
4. My new lens? A Micro Nikkor AF 60mm 1:2.8 Love it!
Again, I'm involved in a 365 day photo challenge..and it is challenging! Your comments mean so much to me because it helps motivate me to keep going! Thank You so much!
