Thank you, Bobby, Tiia, and Michelle.

Michelle, to produce the water reflection, I fumbled around in PhotoShop CS2: First, I used the Liquify tool (which I was having a tough time with). Then, I stretched the water part out using the Transform>Warp tool. Next, I added Motion Blur. I then shaded and shaped the area where the "water" meets the land.

(The sky was not PS'd--- really awesome clouds emerged from the long exposure and fisheye lens!)

Blessings, Lisa♥ #9975935

You mean...THAT IS NOT WATER? WOW! My mouth is hung right open.

THIS IS AMAZING and I am thrilled that you added the before picture.

LISA! Amazing work. I am stunned by this image...and that doesn't happen to me often! I hope this goes GOLD!

Still in shock!
