Neat shot! And great work! Like a mandala (I think that's the word I'm looking for). I don't think I have those functions on my software (Kaleidescope and Vortex.) If they're here, they're sure well hidden! I have never seen them coming up. Did you download those features separately? Looks like they'd be fun to work with! Love the image.

Thanks SO much for taking the time to send your congratulations on this Finalist, John and Darryl - you are both very kind to take the time!! :o)

John - thank you also for the birthday mention!! Actually, the Finalists were announced just four days after my birthday, so the recognition for this image was a very nice slightly late birthday present!! ;o)

Thanks again, gentlemen...and have a GREAT weekend!! :o)
