Feathered Flare
Feathered Flare

Taken early evening as the sun was going down. Feather was set on a mirror outside to reflect the blue sky. I did however change that blue with paint fill in PS because I had a tiny bit of unwanted reflections from my rings showing. I then added a lens flare in PS and the Flood filter from FP. Same settings as my previous feather/flood posting.

Thank you so much Deb & Laurence!! Glad you like it! :0) This feather is special to me as I found it while in Canada visiting my brother in Port Renfrew, BC walking along the beach. Hadn't seen each other in years! Long story there, but it was wonderful to have the family all together again!! :0) Thanks again!! :0)

Such beautiful work, Lori!! I have not had a chance to look much on BP, let alone post. Work has me all over the place. Now I've had LASIK surgery and my eyes have to heal to see correctly. Yikes!
