Wow.. this new file size is fantastic, and not only this but seems to me that file quality is the same as you have it on your screen . I am delighted with these new features.
And of course, all this would not be so fantastic without an awesome image of yours ;)

@Mariana M.: Thanks so much Mariana, you're such a nice lady... yes...the new feature it's very welcome to me, I'm so happy they implemented it. You know, I waste about 100 px for the frame, but still...some is left... moveover, it's probably even most beneficial to me that I use a frame which takes some pixels away... Your visit and comment it's very much appreciated. Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!

That's great light! with the fog in the background, it seems the trail leads to the edge of the earth...

@Yair Karelic: Thanks Yair, that was my feeling too when I walked there that day..

As for the picture size, it's a bit too big to fit my window so I have to use the scroll bar...

@Yair Karelic: Time to upgrade your monitor! :)

I love this new format, makes me think perhaps I ought to go A+ too.
The picture is superb with all of that warm colouring and totally absent background, amazing that you find a nice pool of light to play in when it is foggy..

Very lovely image Maria. Is this a new piece? I'm hoping you are having time for some personal photography.

13 Feb 2012 9:43pm

@Don Smith: Thanks Don. Yes, and No. Yes, New, because I just processed it a couple of days ago, and No, not new, because it was taken several years ago (08/30/2007), but being buried among over 10K images that I took at Point Lobos that first year when I purchased my camera. Hope you and your family had a most wonderful and happiest Valentine's day.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Darn ...... I wish I had come here early this morning! This is just as gorgeous as you it would be for me ... thank you!
Here I go again, thinking this is morning light, but I suspect it's the opposite ... so warm and beautiful.
Another five ***** image!

13 Feb 2012 10:35pm

@Judy aka L@dybug: yes...sunset! well...better said...afternoon, since it was taken at 2:17 pm on August 30th, 2007. :) Thanks much for the visits and comment, hope your Valentine's day was wonderful!

This new picture size is perfect for my screen! I can make out more details in your photos.

Totally magnificent, such depth, and the dappled sunlight highlights the ground so
perfectly, very clear, the background depths seem to go on forever, as if in the
clearest dream one cannot forget !~
