Thanks a lot, Lynn. I had a lot of fun making it -- but it was definitely a challenge making all the clouds work.

Damn you're good!!!! All of your images have such fantastic color, contrast and lighting. I think I have a brain block when it comes to lighting. You have a new fan in me, Jim!

Hi Sherry,

Thank you kindly for your compliments. I'm especially proud of this image because it was done over a 3 day period where I kept studying the funnel and trying to make it look as real as possible. The horizontal streaks inside the funnel are clouds that I stretched and then made them semi-transparent with opacity.
