Q: uplaoding a Tiff photo

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease...Job 14: 7

I shot this self portrait in the afternoon today as a practice shot with the lighting. However, the old hiking shoes didn't go the best with the black skirt but they were comfortable to wear. I don't like teetering around in high heels when I am doing self portraits to run into place on the 10 second timer.. The leaves were what I was mainly trying to focus on.

Thank you so much JanElle for the generous spotlight and for your nomination!

    Looks like you're being hit on by the ad people too! If you report these to JPG, they will block the sender (eventually).

    Thank you all (except for the spammers) for your kind words....Donald, I have reported it to the
    JPG but unfortunately these people that leave ads in my comment box keep changing their names and I can only imagine how difficult it is for JPG to keep up with them...So far they have bombarded me with several ads since October 18th and I keep deleting them.

    Colorful portrait Andrea! I agree with Donald, you look so slim. I have the same trouble with the spammers, I have blocked a few but they change name every day. I also made a report.

    Beautiful fall shot, I think the Oak tree would be blushing at the site of your lovely sweater and fantastic skirt. Terrific!
