Dedicated to Maree Cardinale ~ (2 features in 1 Day~!! ) by 

I’am dedicating this image to you. I feel so great about your enthusiasm with the original image. You really wanted to see this in black and white so today I decided I would do that just for you~! I have played with different settings in all of my ice wheel images, but the one thing I have NOT ever done is turn it black and white. Maree, you are an inspiration to me, you are real, open and full of encouragement for me to push myself to a different level.
So This is Dedicated JUST FOR YOU~! Thank You, and I hope you like what I have done with the black and white effects. I used my Corel X3, changed the image to Black and White, then I played around with the contrast, brightness, and a touch of saturation….and voila~!

Featured In “Our Planets Scenery” 2-10-2013 !!!!

Photography is the only way to capture “time in a bottle” and the everlasting scent of the moment.

    Ohhhhhhhh… I got instant tears in my eyes Brenda! LOL. THANK YOU, what a lovely message xox
    Now, the image… WOWEE girl… this looks fantastic. You did a great job with it. The all colour one is beautiful but this one is striking and quite powerful. The contrasts are delightful… well done Brenda, I love it… and doesn’t a cloudy sky just transform in B&W… fabulous!! :))

  • Awe, I am so excited that you love this~! I am so excited also that you like what I have done with it…. Funny story for you. My husband is the one who spotted these wheels on that day. We were out on a drive just he and I, for pictures and for alone time~! When I let him know what I was doing with this image, he was at work and did not agree. It was so funny. He is not the guy that really has an opinion, but with this image he shockingly did. He said, " No, that picture is perfect the way is, dont mess it up.’" hahaha, I laughed sweetly and let him know I am not changing the original, but making a new image completely. He said “I dont care, I think it looks perfect in color.” So cute coming from my MANLY MAN>…..
    When he got home from work, I showed him, He said, " Oh WOW, that does look really good babe, I was not going to look at the image at all, but wow, it looks great." This is why this image HAS TO BE FOR YOU…..Thank You
