...in Pedona, a charming village with winding cobblestone streets, one restaurant, one church and a LOT of cats high in the hills in Tuscany. Shot with a Kodak disposable camera; enlarge the photo to see the oil pastel effect, which was applied with PS Elements.

    Cool effects, P. Didn't notice them until I enlarged. Is there a place in the world where you haven't been with your camera?

Hi Piper, Thanks very much. Yes, it's hard to see the pastel effects and the neat shadows from the window shutters unless you enlarge the photo. ... And believe it or not, there are a lot of places I don't take my camera. But I probably should always have it with me, huh? :-)Cheers, Patricia

Dolores, thank you so much. I was very happy with how this turned out; it really captures the character and essence of this charming town, I think. It also makes me feel like an artist when I can create something like this! As to where to find the oil pastel effect: In Elements 2.0, which is what I used, go up to "Window" (to the left of "Help"), then "Effects," then "Oil Pastel." In 1.0, it's located elsewhere. I believe "Oil Pastel" is simply under "Effects" up at the top. I'll be looking for an oil pastel from you soon. :-) Thanks again for the compliment! -- Ciao, Patricia
