I too like this crop better than te original; it has a very lush feeling.

Shirley, I've cropped out the upper part, now it looks better. Viorel

Shirley, I forgot to tell, yes, they turn red during the fall. I assume they're marvelous then. Viorel

Thank you Shirley for appreciation. There were too many people around, (it's shot in a park) so I tried to get as few as them as possible. Indeed without the almost washed out sky would look better, I'll give it a try. My original idea was to catch the dynamic of the trees then I realized the color itself has some nice effect. Cheers.

I just scrolled down to make sure my comment went through and I think I love the solid green look you get if you crop the top off where the sky shows through. Maybe use the original and crop it as an 800x600 instead of the verticle shot? I really like that everything is green other then the people in the distance. Just a thought.

You sure do have all your greens out! We have just started getting little leaves on the trees and it will be a good month before the vines start getting their leaves. Just look at all the green! I have to ask, the the leaves on these vines turn bright red during the fall? Very nice shot!
