Frances I like the edits better because it's brighter and cheerier. You took away the dark shadows. Very beautiful pictures.

Frances I really love the detail you give for how you achieve your edits. I'm loving your search for things to photograph, especially the beautiful old farms. I need another hands on lesson from you on using textures. It's the erasing part that I think I'd struggle with the most. Isn't it powerful how you can take a photo of something from life and add beauty to it.
