Great Lakes Fence Co.

I have loved this sign in our backyard ever since we moved in. As I was looking for inspiration, it popped out at me. I love it's rustic look.

The funny thing is, as I was editing it I tried something in color and loved it even more. :) But I do like the old look. :)

Candace said...

Great job, Rachel, I absolutely love everything about this...

So, I'm almost tempted to say that I would rather see it in color... my mind is going crazy popping in these awesome rust tones and green backgrounds. Of course- I have no idea if those colors are in the original. So maybe it's better to be left up to my imagination... guess I'll never know. :0)

Nice composition and love the rustic feel. And thanks for being patient with me 'til I was ready to get back in the swing of things!

Another great one! You've done it yet again!

Here it is straight forward. you took something that would have been completely boring and made me look at it several times and for a long time! Who would have thought a little sign on a chain link fence could be so interesting.

I love this!!! You did great with that rustic feel and I really like how it looks. Like Blake, I kept coming back to look at this some more. Love it.

wow! this is is awesome! I feel like even though its in black and white, I can see the color!! okay I know that sounds crazy, but I think it should do that, instead of seeing the color you feel it... I promise I'm not crazy. I really enjoyed this picture!

Rachel H. said...
