MY COMMENTS:
Second Plen Aire of the Hudson River. The Indian Point Nuclear Power plant in the background. I liked this view but there was a utility pole right in my line of view (then a light bulb went off in my mind-pun intended) and I wanted the power plant in the background and the utility pole in the foreground.<br><br>

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any comments/suggestions appreciated

Beautiful plein aire! The somber tone to this speaks to the power plant in the distance. Well done on the water!

I like that you left the pole in. It show that we are impacting all areas of nature. Good one Tony.

Very nice Tony. You have such a unique touch--quite ethereal, yet solid. Iím quite drawn to it. Thought-provoking subject.

Dana thanks so much you comments mean a lot to me.

Thank you Sergio. While it's not meant to be an environmental statement I can see that it will be interpreted that way and that's ok.

Corby - great comment. I have been working on atmospheric perspective. Since I frequently work with horizontal elements as opposed to diagonals the depth perspective is always a concern. I paid extreme attention to accomplishing depth, in part, by color on this one. Thanks so much for noticing.

Thank you Tali, such a nice compliment.
