simply stunning!!! do you share how you did it? I am fairly new to these forums and still learning my way around. do the photographers shoot and "tell" how they did so that others many learn and improve techniques?

Debbie, welcome! BP is all about learning from each other. I've gained so much from this site! Folks are great about sharing techniques and how they did something.
The only thing I added to this shot is applied the floud filter. You can learn about it here: http://www.flamingpear.com/flood.html
Thanks for commenting!
