Well composed. #123567

Murry Grigsby

Thanks, Colette, Duane and America. #123601

Jean-Francois Schmutz

Wonderful capture, Murry !
with your tight compositon, I can easly imagine to see also Elephant's Feets !


PS/ Can you telling more about this simplify filter ? #123610

Murry Grigsby

Thanks, JF. You can download a demo version of Buzz-Lite from in the UK. It allows 30 uses before you have to buy a key to use it or abandon it if you don't like it. I use the simplifier #1 filter which is part of Buzz but can be purchased separately for around $20.00 US plus shipping and the UK VAT tax. It takes a lot of PC memory to apply it to large photo files. It works best on photos with trees, leaves, old wood, etc. I usually apply at 5-40% but you can experiment with higher settings. Good luck! #123612

June Marie Sobrito

Nice work! The effects are great! I also see elephant's feet inthis.. #123633

Gary W. Lake

The filter effect is very nice, but you started out with a very good photo, too.
Excellent composition with the trees and branches contrasting to the water and plants.
Beautifully done, Murry

This is a beautiful image and a great work! Thanks for the information about the filter! #123767

Leanne M.E. Boyd

Great shot Murry. I don't know very much about the fancy stuff, but I'm very impressed with the results. Good work. #123853

Murry Grigsby

Thanks, Evy and Leanne. #123884

Charlene Bayerle

Ditto Murry on what everyone said. This is really pretty. It's almost worth the trip to Texas after looking at your pictures. #123895

Lem Metro

Everyone has already been here. What haven't they said already? Let's see. I know about the filter. Good. Thanks, Murry. I thought when I first saw the frame, it might be a painting effect. It's sweet! And so is the photo. The washed out background highlights are so effective! I really like it. Oh, "and the UK VAT tax"? I don't even want to know, do I? #123923

Dolores Neilson

Hey, it's Buzz Lightyear! Superb job on this, Murry!! A wonderful application on this!! A lovely enhancement...good choice!! Good luck with it! #123970

Murry Grigsby

Thanks, Char, Lem and Dolores.

Char--yes Texas is worth a trip but I'd avoid June-August unless you really like HEAT and HUMIDITY.

Lem--after you add S&H and the VAT the $20.00 purchase ends up being closer to $50.00. Ellen Peach said she found Buzz in the US??

Dolores--I'm a BUZZ addict. What can I say? #124196

Evy Johansen

..Oh dear, what a mess... Now I have tried the BUZZ ...... I think it's very difficult.... :-) #124201

Patricia Marroquin 7/7/2003 12:05:52 AM

Another Murry Buzz Beauty makes the finals! Congratulations, Murry! Actually, one of my finalist shots (3 begging Goldens) was buzzed too. I've gotta ask Ellen how she purchased the filter in the U.S.! :-) #134828

Evy, I just noticed I never answered your earlier post. Can I help you with Buzz? It really is very easy to use once you've got it in the plugin folder within your photo editor's folder. Let me know if I can help :0) #135697

Wolfgang Dolak 7/7/2003 10:34:10 AM

This is an excellent image, Murry! As Bill said, way back at the beginning of these comments, you started with a great photo that is smartly composed and then the enhancement turns it into artwork! Very effective! Good luck in the finals with this :-) #139836
