Jill Odice 11/19/2005 1:05:07 PM

Hey everyone, thanks so much for all the congrats :-) This was so unexpected! I was so excited when I finished creating this, I posted it at 2 other sites and had so many people rip it apart saying it looked fake to them etc. I do not look at it as a photograph, but more of a painting by computer :-) I am always trying new things with PS, and there is so much to learn, I figure I am using about 1% of the program :-) Again, thanks, I will try and catch up on comments through the day but there are so many! :-) WAHOO!!!! #2095212

bob cornelison 11/19/2005 4:37:25 PM

Congrats Jillo! Nice POTD!
Since you mentioned that you were ripped on 2 other sites I just wanted to say why I think they did. I would have put a SLIGHT blue tint on the moon to better blend with the rest of the shot but that is just my 2 cents and it's no better than your 2 cents.
I haven't had any time to shoot, post or comment at all lately so I just wanted to say hi. Keep em coming!
