DIGITAL DARKROOM
July 2007

I visited the digital darkroom today. Ya know, it's a lot of FUN in there!!!
This is an image I started a few months ago, but couldn't figure out where to go with it.
I shot the full moon and the swan images last November.
The sky and water scene started with a graduated fill, then a lot of experimenting with different tools and filters in CS2.
An idea came to me today, and I was finally able to take this to completion.
This type of work is really new for me. I'd really appreciate any comments or suggestions.
Thanks for looking.

This work is very composed and it was edited with a lot of attention, I know about that!
New experiences demand work and dedication... AND you had success, photographer! I liked a lot... I Remembered the art of Salvador Dali...
My congratulations!

Thank you for the great comments, Larysa and Hmoura (virafoto)!

Hmoura, my pics are still on the BP site. I've left 3 favorites on the top line of the website and have posted the newer images below. I occasionally change the order around.
I was vacationing in San Francisco for over a week, and returned to work just hours after my flight came back into town.
But I'm back now, posting images from a fabulous family vacation! So glad to see you back, too!!!
