Terrific shot Ed! Wonderful work!
I will have to remember the RainX tip. I've been trying to get more dimension in my drops.
Great job!

Shelly,

Thanks. The flag is about a foot beneath the glass on this one (as I recall). I was trying to show just a small piece with diagonal shapes/lines & a triangle effect rather that more of the flag. This one - http://www.pbase.com/ed_k/image/29534493 - done two years ago had the flag about 3 feet away to show more of hte flag.
