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
