Congratulations on your win- its beautiful

To bad you have to search to see the winners- I guess it Murphy's law. The moment I get a honorable mention, they hide the announcement.

I'm sure more people would be commenting on your photo if the winners were easier to find

Hi Jo Ann !! You're going to love using Painter. I have been playing with it and combining bits of it with Photoshop for a while now, but taking the course with Jim Zuckerman gave me the "kick" I needed to really try new things. Jim has some inspiring work and gives you the brushes he used and technique to really have some fun !! Thanks so much for commenting...and good luck with Painter !!

Aaa ha!!! Yahooo........

That is wonderfulllll Judy....I am so thrilled. Poor me that I could spot it only today. Where did they hid this one????

So, you crack a winner and that too a GRAND GRAND one!!! Hats off!!! Or, should I say, I knew knew...:))). Your brushes are always so delicate and beautiful, and I wondered when Better Photo judges will wake up to it! So they have. And this piece, of course, is brilliant.

I have returned to Betterphoto after a long break, and hope to stay here on a more regular basis.

Hope you are doing fine, in all other ways!

I think I shall stop here, otherwise it is turning out to be mail :-))) LoL!!!

Hi Remi, It's one of those things that can't really be explained and each time you do it, depending on the image you use, turns out a bit different. the fact that this had great bokeh worked well for the impressionist brush to follow the circles. the foreground was then painted with various brushes including one of the impasto. I work mostly "playing it by ear"..or "eye":-) so glad you like it ! Thanks for commenting !!
