What a lovely comment Christina. Thank you. As a matter of fact I enjoyed a lot of your work as well. Except for the bugs. Well done but I hate looking at that stuff. :)

I have to agree with Roger, Arlene.

This image is very well done indeed. I like the composition, colors and the FX used to give it painted texture in the sky and water sections.

Arlene, this is fantastic! My home page is BP and when I opened my browser there was you image. I had to stop and take a closer look.

Would you mind sharing what FX you used to get to the final product?

Deb thank you for your interest in this image. I am sure I did some preliminary Photoshop work such as croping, color ehancement and sharpening. Then I had a trial version of Virtual Painter and played with that until I found a look that I was satisfied with.
