    Very creative...I love the way everything is so soft looking and the lighthouse is just sharp and stands out. Well done!

This is awesome, guess I still have much practice to achieve this quality to my IR experiments :-) Beautiful job Alana!

I'd be glad to see the original too! I've created an IR action that I use...did you have a specific method? Very ice conversion.

Thank you so much Nicole, Jill, and Richard! I'm glad you stopped by, thanks for the kind comments. Richard, I am uploading the original, and I will send you an email regarding the method I used (as it is a little lengthy). Have a great day everyone!

Alana, that's pretty slick. I've never played around with IR. Is it hard to do? CAn you send me the e-mail you sent to Richard?

Alana this is a beautiful shot. I hate to ask you to send me an email to but I am interested. The original shot, while beautiful too, pales in comparison to the one submitted. Great job!
