I like this overexposed treatment. Guess we just keep experimenting. This has a very lovely painterly quality. I recently posted one that was almost underexposed.....

This is very beautiful Anita. I love the high key nature and I am always a sucker for well done added textures. You should pursue this type of imagery more.
