These two fishermen were returning home on a jetty that extends out into the Long Island Sound. I used a flood filter for this effect.

Hi Dolores: I'm not sure exactly what Dominique said, but I'm sure it was something like, "Fantastic photo!" I'd definitely agree with that ... terrific work! Kerry

This is incredibly beautiful, Dolores! Beyond that, I love the way it looks like the fishermen are walking on water. Too cool. Could you explain what a flood filter does? That's a new one for me. :)

Pardon me if I'm wrong, but did you mean an FLD filter, and "flood filter" was a pun. This flourescent light to daylight filter can give some interesting effects. It doesn't matter what filter was used, you have a very nice photograph.

Greetings Randy!! I included the link to the flood filter website in my reply to Kathleen (right after Peder's) It is a post processing filter for Photoshop! And many thanks for taking time to extend a complimentary note. I appreciate it very much!

Thanks for the info, Dolores. I still think of a filter as something that screws onto a lens. LOL I have lots to learn! :)

Thanks again Carol and Randy! I did not know a flood filter existed either until 4 months ago...when I saw a winning shot redone with it and reentered as another!! The image was actually quite nice without it but the filter added a more dramatic element. The intention was to make them appear they were walking on water!

Damian, thank you for acknowledging my work at print photo! You really are an asset to the photo community. I think you are delightful! Thanks for always extending kindness on my work!

You're welcome, Kathleen...yes, filters have come a long way, haven't they? I've been having fun with them lately...applied thoughtfully and with a purpose, they can bring your image to a whole new level. I hate that they are overused though by some photographers. It is apparent with some images, that the filters don't really add anything but they're used anyway!

Greetings, sister friend!! Thank you so much! The end of the month is fast approaching...I get so excited around judging time. You know...which pics will be chosen...and all that stuff. Did I tell you my camera is at the Canon factory for repair? I'm miserable... I'm in my archives editing stuff! My camera shoots in RAW mode (wonderful!)so I save all my raw files as digital "negatives"...I don't always edit after a shoot...I procrastinate to the end. I better start some editing or I'll run out of pics to submit. Cheers, Carolyn!! Thanks for your delightful comment once again!!

Carolyn...you've got lots of breaks! You need to give me one!

Greetings Marija!! Thank you so much for allowing me to be the recipient of another kind compliment from you!! You know I appreciate it! Ah yes...my French...I write it terribly!! When I was young, French was my primary language and it's all we spoke in our home...but we moved before I learned how to write it! I know there's tons of grammatical errors in my French writing! But I hope people understand and don't dwell too much on the mistakes! Merci boucoup, ma cher!
