You sure have the hang of post processing I have a lot to learn. I', ploughing through the book for Aperture 3 at the moment but going slowly.

Very pretty - I love the shot of the pelicans, especially.

Gorgeous shots, I love the second one of the flower and sand. And the pelicans, fabulous. I miss seeing those funky birds.

How come you were so lucky???? Blogger did not install their *new comment thingy* in your blog!

I didn't want it, and they installed it. And now many of my Dear Readers can not comment in my blog. -pout-

If anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about, please read at the top of my Sidebar. And click on the link, I give there.

Please and thank you!

You know - you have NATURAL talent - honest - I could work for years on a camera and don't think I'd ever get the beauty you did.

EG Wow said...

It's so much fun to look back, don't you think? Great fiddling, especially the pelicans!

Angela said...

Love them! You know how to do it girl!

Scott said...

You drug out some cool old treasures here.

Ginny said...

I'm so happy to see you were able to change your header!!! These are all spectacular!!! The rainbow cat, the parrot, the bit of pink in the pelican sky. And the Bird Of Paradise flower, is that the real color or did you do it?? If so, it's so good that I can't even tell!! I can't believe these are photos from early on, you could sell any one of them!

I love your fiddling, esp. the pelicans. I have pics that are in the "to be processed" folders, but doubt I'll ever get around to them. Maybe when I retire, but then my eyes will be so bad they'll come out terrible. :( Oh well, yours are great.

SweetMarie said...

The bird of paradise in your header is pretty! The flower and the glass kitty is so pretty, especially with all the colors the kitty is picking up....wow!
I haven't been to Anna Maria Island for about 5 or 6 years now. I took Kyle and a couple of his friends. That's where he found his first sand dollar. It was paradise there. We stayed on the beach. I think the only time I've seen that many pelicans is when we were in the keys feeding tarpon and the pelicans wanted to be fed as well. :) That is a gorgeous picture you captured of them! I love all the different pics today. You're one talented lady.

Ann said...

I like your art work. You should see some of my early stuff, really pathetic....lol
Love that crystal cat with the rainbow reflection

Andrew said...

Even your early attempts were very good. I haven't attempted to try anything like this yet.

Well, keep on fiddling Sandra. These are fun and quite beautiful.
I love archive diving and discovering things I hadn't seen for a long time.
