Thank you sooo much, Kathleen, Jan, and Carolyn!

No classes, Carolyn - just "experimenting" and loving it! Trial and error (lots of error!) and checking out all those funny little icons in PS!

And now the word from Joy! (in response to Jim's question):

Hi Jim - that's great! Now...where do I begin??? First I cloned out the branches and wires. I isolated different parts of the building so I could color them different colors (I probably changed the colors many times 'til I got what I really liked). I also used poster edges to accentuate the lines. The sky and "sun" came from the gradient tool. Once I picked the color combination, I changed linear to radial to get the sun. I didn't want the sun in the middle so I started cloning it to the side, and "accidentally" also cloned part of the roof which turned out to be great. To balance it out, I cloned a small part of the roof on the right side. The procedure was quite tedious and time consuming but well worth the work. Glad you like it. Hope that all makes sense! Joy

Thanks, Joy, for providing the "story" behind the making of this photograph!
