My name is Gail and I live in a beautiul place in Eastern Ontario, Canada.. I am an amateur photographer trying very hard to practice and improve. I do not Photoshop but think I will have to consider LIghtroom 4. I live on a lake and thus the beautiful sunsets just out my door. I am ever grateful for your kind comments on my submitted photos.. So.. what makes a great photo? ... An emotional response to the subject? the colours? The processing of the image.. the light? I am eager to learn and thank you for your kind comments....Thank you ..
