Best on Full Size

I’ve been listening to the soundtrack for “Lord Of The Rings,” I think it rubbed off on this one!!

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens and Manfrotto tripod on August 11, 2010. Shutter speed 1/400, aperture f/5.6, exposure -0.33, iso 400. One of the many nooks at the beautiful Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland, USA. Actually, it was a glorious, tropically hot and steamy summer’s afternoon with everything wildly lush and jungle-y green … but I’m in the mood for autumn. Much tinkering in Photoshop CS4 including levels, textures, filters, and some hand painting.
