  1. Thanks Di. It is something you can think about or not! These days we are so lucky that we can just delete anything we don’t like, so working out why something is good or pleasing on the eye between two similar photos I find very interesting. Like the ladies in red!

    1. Hi Louisa,

      Isn’t it awesome that we can just delete what we don’t want and keep what we want, put photos into the cloud, print them.

      I also love that people from all ages, gender, culture now take photos on iphones, ipads, snappies, go pro and the expensive SLR cameras.

      Trust these professional tips may come in handy at some point in time

      Yes Those ladies in red are very gorgeous

      Thankyou for coming over and adding to our conversation Louisa
