Fantastic Stan. I love the blue and white colouring and I also love the use of the dry brush (its one of my favourite filters). This really is stunning.

Sanjay, Janet, Dan, and Mary you are way too kind and I thank you and appreciate your very supportive comments.
I was very surprised at this turning blue after I inverted this after applying the VP Sepia process! Guess that's the fun of "playing" in the digital darkroom!
Many thanks once again and have a great remainder of the week!!
With fond Aloha,
Stan

Beautiful work in DD, also appearing to have been in outerspace..., that makes me wonder what it would really look out there...., are you writing a sci-fi by any chance, Stan???... just kidding, of course :D ....
...i got to love this, blue is my favorite color!!!
...i like the flower on the top that looks like a pinwheel...
