Wanda, Barbara and SaMi -- Thank you for the encouraging words. As fellow photogs, you know that feedback of any kind is greatly appreciated.

SaMi, yes one blade of grass fanned out through multiple exposures. A truly fascinating technique with unlimited potential for art and design.

I missed this the first time around, Mike....VERY NICE. Just the kind of thing I am working on these days, thanks to Andre Gallant and Freeman Patterson. REALLY looking forward to seeing more of your work in Tony's class.

Hi Sandy ~

Thanks. Yes, this is a technique that I learned, where else, but in Tony's Fine Art Flower course.
