Independence Day 2011
Independence Day 2011
7/3/11, DD. I have to work tomorrow, so created this for the 4th. Below is the original of Knoxville at sunset. I used many layers to change lighting, change colors, add fireworks, and figured out how to make reflections. Have fun tomorrow, everyone! (By the way, I read today that 1/4 of our populace doesn't know who our independence was from!!! SAD!!!)

It's ridiculously sad and speaks volumes about our public school system and gadget-caused isolationism.

But your image is fabulous, Carol.

Fabulous DD work and marvelous creation, Carol! The lighting is amazing - I wouldn't know where to start to create such wonderful rich, jewel tones and colors, and fantastic reflections. As Gord says, more gold on the way for this one! Sorry you had to work...but hope the day was a little frivolous anyway!
