after the rain..

I know, I know... I used the embedded frame again. But I really liked the look it gave this image. It added an element that just made it pop more, I think. ;-)

I think what it is, is that the frame has added depth to this image. Good call on your part Amy...this photograph is stunning, pure art of nature!

I love the muted natural tones and the line in this shot ... and ... guess what? I really like the frame! I agree with you here, it adds a touch of class. Well done Amy. (PS: This would be a lovely desktop photo)

Beautiful shoot and sharp! I like the composition choose and framing, but this frame is not a good idea... for me.

A work of art sweety, a work of art! and honestly until i looked again, I didn't see the frame, either because it's so perfect it's unnoticeable or because the centre of it was such a delight, I didn't see anything else...either way, you've done good ;)

You've used the frame to a beautiful effect Amy, a stunning close up shot of the raindrops on the blades of grass.

I'm with everyone else. The frame is perfect on this one.

And I totally agree with you, it does make it pop. I am such a lover of frames. E-mail me and let me know where you got this free program from. Love the picture too. The droplets on the grass are just beyond beautiful. As the Australians would say "good eye, mate".
