Oh, CC, are you playing the "prophetic game"? I'm crossing my fingers here, my friend :)

Hey, CD, no, this is not a Corel filter. This is a filter from the site that Sharon suggested in the DRU forum. Its the Nik Software. Go check it out, its cool!

Thanks a lot, you girls!!!

Hi, Sharon! Thanks :) As I stated above this thread, I achieved this kind of tone because of the site that you posted at DRU club. So, I owe you one for this.

Jean, I appreciate your words. Thanks :) We can not do anything good without God's intervention. God bless you, too!

Christine, I couldn't have done it with God's help :) Thanks for the warm comments.

Cousin Karen, thanks for the flattering words. Its always my joy to capture God's beautiful creation and share it to you, guys.

Look who just visited my finalist... its big sister, Laura!!! Well, thanks for everything, my friend. You know when I first joined BP, and DRU in particular, I always felt that I was a lost lion cub that was found and raised by 5 great tigresses: Christine, YOU, Candice, Sherrybear, and Joan H. You, guys have taught, and still is teaching, me the ins and out of BP and digital photography for that matter. Maybe I always have the passion for nature, but I definitely harnessed my "talent" with the help of friends like you. Now as the lion cub continues to grow, it starts to learn to wander away from its 'parents' to develop its individuality, maturity, and learn more.. I have found other friends along the way who have taught me a thing or two about advanced techniques. With God's help, I was able to accumulate so much in a relatively short amount of time. Thanks to all of you!!!
