Lovely photos; I like the effect in the third photo.

Isn't amazing how just a subtle edit can make such a big difference in a picture. I very much like the poster edit.

Manang Kim said...

Very lovely, nature amazes me so much specially that I am having fun joining a lot of memes. Not once that somebody had the same photo or picture it all had different colors or shapes though sometimes the same theme. Amazing!
