    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Reading a book...

    A candid shot of a lady reading a book while waiting for her kid in the pool. This was shot inside the Seaworld compound in San Antonio, Texas.

    Click on the image to see the big picture. Thank you very much for viewing.

    I wonder about cropping it just to the left of the tree, at something like a 7:5 ratio? I'm not sure that the left-hand portion is adding much to the image and the crop would throw more attention onto the lady.

    Beautiful conversion.

    That's good possible crop, too. Let me try that in a couple of minutes, Donald. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I think that is better Jiro, infact before I did not notice her scrunch eyebrows....I think she might have caught you.

    Thanks, Donald, Paul, and Steve. This is something new for me - square cropping.

    I like the square crop as well, Willie. It's a nice crisp picture... I like it.
