Thanks so much Patricia, Claudia, Eugenio, Nadine, Rhonda and Barbara. You all know this, I'm sure. But I'm finding that certain photos truly lend themselves to specific filters. (As you can see, I'm still in the learning stage with post production work). I truly appreciate you input. A huge thank you to all.

Mary- One of the joys that I hold dear and that fills my day with delight, is to be able to go though the galleries and see all the incredible work that is being done. Your gallery is second to none and the variety and talent you have in presenting them is amazing.
Your talent is featured in each picture.
I love the look of this. The effects give such a beautiful painted look and adds character to the sail boat. Outstanding composition, beautiful colors, fantastic effects. I agree, this is a winner to me and will be going into my favorites. Just love it.
Have a marvelous day, please take care, be safe.
