Ha, so that's why you have stopped submitting images to the course - you are busy entering photo contests! This is really beautiful. (I have a flower photo to submit too, but can you let me know what month you won't be entering to give me a bit more of a chance??). #2155850

Thomas F. Andersen 12/5/2005 2:44:17 PM

Thanks Sharon and Cathy! Hi Karen, ha ha, oh well this was taken before we started the course :-) and I have been flat out lately with work, I am late with the last two assignments and to top it off I have to go to New Zealand next week-end (not that I want to complain about that). You've already got some great shots, I am sure you can make it into the finals with some of your shots. Anyway, thanks for your comments. #2155908

Christopher Budny 12/7/2005 5:35:35 PM

Congratulations on this stellar image! Question: What were the differences in the original 2 images? What was achieved in the sandwich process? #2163304

Kaye Burazin 1/6/2008 7:01:18 PM

I can see why this made it to the winner's circle. Stunning! #5302247

Thomas F. Andersen 1/7/2008 5:35:50 AM

Kaye, thanks for you kind comment.

Christopher, if you are still subscriping to this thread apologies for the late reply. I have been off the site for a couple of years due to work commitments. Just in case you are still wondering :-) this was one sharp image at maximum depth of field and one defocused (blurred) image combined with the blur giving the 'dreamy' effect. Tony Sweet uses this technique a fair bit and this image was part of an assignment in his Fine Art Flower course. #5303917
