    Beautiful work, I would love to see it in Dimensions as well.

  • Goodness, Sharon, you are very kind. I just read the rules and joined, but if you hadn’t have suggested it, I wouldn’t have considered this artistic enough. I’m flattered!

    Can you please remind me of your name? I am so sorry I cannot remember. Mahalo, I look forward to seeing your work there. Dimensions is a wonderfully diverse collection of many styles and artistic mediums. But the primary focus is and has always been Fine Art Photography. With so many members joining and submitting new work each day, it is an inspirational group and a challenge to keep the theme on track. I am always drawn to a well balanced beautifully composed photograph.

  • Hi Sharon, Mahalo, just sent you a bubblemail; thanks again for the suggestion about Dimensions!
