Silk Creek just before Sunset

I like the gaussain blur in this image Mary. The colors almost have a glow to them. I think this is very beautiful, & it caught my eye right, away even in the thumbnail! ~Pam~ #314900

At first I thought you might have used the buZZ effect.....the gaussian blur looks great and the idea of pasting the original tree back in makes this scenic imaage beautiful!! #1868880

mmmm very inspiring ... this technique might help me feel better about some of my more grainy pics produced by my camera. I'm feeling rather discouraged ... like every shot is nearly useless because in one way or another my HP945 is just about ruining every shot ... but this really could help a few. Thanks for sharing!

have fun,

Hi Mary,
Beautiful image you have here! However, I think I am faced with the same prediciment as you were with this one. But the response you've received is quite good. Maybe I don't need to worry so much about mine? I've held off posting it, but I think I may try something now. You have a wonderful gallery, and I enjoyed viewing through it!

I love it Mary! It makes me want to sit down on the shore and stay awhile. Great shot -- Judy

I was wading in the creek so I only carried the point and shoot.
Jordan, NY

I applied a gaussian blur and then pasted the orginal tree back in without the blur. I'm not sure if I like it or not. I generally prefer things sharp. Also did some other adjustments in PSCS.
