Thank you, everone! I liked the original (the circular polarizer really deepened that cloudless sky!) but I've had fun playing with Flood, too. I've got to give it a rest now... No more floods, this month! ;)

Many thanks, folks! I appreciate the comments. The "unflooded" version of this same image doesn't seem to have quite the same punch as this.

Thank you both, guys, so much! Definitely the "flooded" image I'm most happy with, from my experimentation with that filter! Certainly adds a punch to the original image!

Thank you, Sam... It is a fun filter to play with; I got a little carried away, initially, flooding everything!

I know what you mean, I got carried away with Flaming Pear's Flexify as well - I was mirror-balling everything!

Thank you very much, Judy! I seem to enjoy the software work on photos, as much as the taking of photographs... always interesting to me, to see what can come out of an otherwise ordinary image!
