Ha, so that's why you have stopped submitting images to the course - you are busy entering photo contests! This is really beautiful. (I have a flower photo to submit too, but can you let me know what month you won't be entering to give me a bit more of a chance??).

Thanks Sharon and Cathy! Hi Karen, ha ha, oh well this was taken before we started the course :-) and I have been flat out lately with work, I am late with the last two assignments and to top it off I have to go to New Zealand next week-end (not that I want to complain about that). You've already got some great shots, I am sure you can make it into the finals with some of your shots. Anyway, thanks for your comments.

Congratulations on this stellar image! Question: What were the differences in the original 2 images? What was achieved in the sandwich process?

Kaye, thanks for you kind comment.

Christopher, if you are still subscriping to this thread apologies for the late reply. I have been off the site for a couple of years due to work commitments. Just in case you are still wondering :-) this was one sharp image at maximum depth of field and one defocused (blurred) image combined with the blur giving the 'dreamy' effect. Tony Sweet uses this technique a fair bit and this image was part of an assignment in his Fine Art Flower course.
