This is beautiful, Frances. I love the composition here. The bird feels so close and when you scroll down the land seems so far away. I like the colour of the clouds as well.

@✿ Anina ✿: Thanks Anina, I often think my photos are a little bit to big hence the scrolling, I haven't mastered the art of selecting the right size yet:)

No, your's doesn't bother me, because it's good quality photos. I love it this size. But if you do want to make it "smaller" I normally use Picnik. I use it for all my editing, it's free on-line. www.picnik.com
