Beautiful photo Linda! love how the red looks so deep and like on fire for the softness. I see lately many photos with this fractalius filter and really looks like a very good one to play with!

Have a wonderful new year,

Linda - Ditto with what everyone else has said. Just where did you get this filter and who makes it? I've made the switch from PC to MAC but the rest of the computers in the family are PC's.
