Sense of Place: Ohme Gardens, Wenatchee Washington

Postby LindaShorey » Sat May 21, 2016 7:09 pm

Huge challenges with harsh light and shadows, so I softened in pp for a gentler mood - which is also more in line with what I felt while there :) Thanks for viewing!

These are some difficult lighting conditions. I think you did a good job of conveying the mood of the Gardens in these images, particularly the first one.

Love the title and the first. It would probably be a throwaway if not for the mood you gave it making me come back to it again and again.

Thank you for sharing and starting what I hope to be a recurring theme! S-
