Thank you Bianca! You know I added the softness and the blue tone but I didn't add the "spirits". They were actually in the photo and really showed up when I added the softness to the image! :-o

You really added great up! The softness and the lighting it looks like a smoke cloud is passing by.

Thanks Kate. It was taken during the day and I was there with a group of photographers...thank goodness. It was during one of the mentor trips with Popular Photography. The "spirits" showed up after using one of Craig's Shadow Soft actions to add the atmosphere. I have attached teh original. You can barely see the "spirits" in the original.

Thank you Sharon! I didn't realize we had so many "spirits" around us when we were there! Must be that sparking wine they serve in Boston! ;-)
