The old Dogwood tree seems right at home in this Church graveyard. Both the church and the graveyard date back to the 1600's, which, by American standards, is very old. I liked how the dogwood blossoms reflected the light. This image was captured exactly in the middle of the day! Not the best time but t was my only opportunity to grab the shot.
To grab this look, I used my Singh Ray Hi-Lux filter stacked with my Singh Ray Tony Sweet Pro-Mist filter. The Tony Sweet filter is what provides this dreamy look...it is fun to experiment with
In two days, I will feature this same image but in B&W - let me know what you think of the two of them if you wish.

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
