Nice work lighting this.. not really a landscape though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 10:48:20 PM
I do hope you're not suffering from the poorly calibrated monitor brigade. This is a magnificent entry. Love the soft glow of the moonlight hitting the top of the trees and the ambient light coming from the house. Little touches like those are what makes this image a delight to view. Added to faves :)

I love this photo, because it's beautiful and flawless but also because I think i know how you did it. But, back to your photograph... I like simple, "country" feel and the subtle lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/09/2008 10:12:24 AM
Well done! For an instant I thought this might have been an actual landscape. Good lighting on the trees and I like the colors. I hope this does well.
