    This is so pretty, Roseann.
Excellent composition using the branches and leaves to frame the scene.
Nicely done.

This is excellent!! Wonderful composition!
Which settings of sharp/sat/contrast do you use with your camera? I have the same one.

Thank you Susan P., Susan E. Sharon, Lori, Karen and Su!

Su, I took this image around 9am, somewhat overcast day in the P mode. Then took the image into Photoshop, duplicated the layer several times, cleaned up houses and stuff in background, did a gaussian blur on one layer, multiplied on another layer and did a screen setting on another layer. Cropped off the bottom half which had the shadow of the tree and voila!

Wow, lots of work! I never thought of duplicating the layers before. I'll try that some time. Thanks for the info!

Thanks Stan!! Aloha to you!!

Thanks Lori! I ALWAYS duplicate the layer before doing anything in Photoshop. Then I can play with different effects and not affect the original image. : )

Great image, Roseann - and thanks for posting your original as well...for comparison! IMHO, your very nice PS work gives the finished image an almost 'painted' look! Anway, I saw 'On the Path' featured and wanted to comment...and congratulate you on your Second Place win with it last year! :)
