Very nice work, Michelle. I like the original best and the fractalius version next. It looks just like a painting. Your composition is exceptional. The mist, a powerful element, shows up so well in the original. I think it's less effective in the fractalius version. I still find them both appealing though.

Michelle this photo is outstanding. I was very impressed with the wonderful pencil drawing effect. Then I viewed the original and I was blown away. You captured the essence of calm and peace. All of the elements work together for an exquisite whole. Love all three versions.

Well, the thumbnail grabbed me and held right on, and then the title did (oh, that's why "rats" bridge), and then the full photo did. I love the plants rising from the bottom of the frame to "meet" the flow of the hanging trees. The effects are beautifully done for this image.

WOW! This is BEAUTIFUL!!! Actually, ALL three images are beautiful, each in it's own right! Love the B&W; the tones, shadows and highlights, always partial to them. Then original is a gorgeous capture of an incredible place, soft lighting , gorgeous color and flow to it and then I LOVE the creative, artistic effects you added to it Michelle! SO HARD TO CHOSE as each brings out a certain beautiful aspect of the capture itself! WTG!

Congratulations on your first big win ... it gets easier from now on ... each of these three images reflects a different feeling ... the B/w is a more open image ... clean and focused, the second a more etheral feeling... and the third more of a fantasy. Each is excellent in it's own right. Each is unique. Ken-

Congratulations, Michelle!
You use this filter like an artist, like a painter uses its brushes. From a "normal" photo you created something new with a judicious sense of balance because although you transfigured the original you kept its essence by not overflowing it with the effect.
Congratulations again, it was a well deserved winner.

Michelle, I need advice. How do you keep up with all the comments? I feel so guilty that I cannot keep up with all the comments I get. When I get a gold here my first reaction is: How do I thank everyone? :(
As for this photo...no comment!!! Just print, frame and send it to me!!! OK...you won't do that. So..when I visit you I want to see it displayed in your home.

I know this is an older picture but I really like your effects on this. I like the colored version better. I know this past but congrats on this. Well deserved.

I love Monet and recognized this garden immediately. What a dream to be there in person.

I have the biggest smile here. I know how you have felt about the fractalius filter in the past but look at the masterpiece that you have created!!!

Even Monet would be impressed! I sure am.
