Linda, Tom, John, Susana, Cristi, David, Marie, Wende, Janine, Joseph, Alison, Claudia, and Cindy, THANK YOU!

This was actually a shot that I took about a year ago. As I was going through some old CD's I found it and thought I may be able to enhance it with a little help from PS. I applied the "Faded" filter from VP and this was the result. I'm so glad you like it!

I'll see if I can attach the original for ya.
