Path to Light

Cherie Early 11/2/2005 5:52:02 PM

Very creative...I love the way everything is so soft looking and the lighthouse is just sharp and stands out. Well done! #337169

Roger Bernabo 11/2/2005 6:17:58 PM

Looks like a winter wonderland, magnificent #2028722

This is awesome, guess I still have much practice to achieve this quality to my IR experiments :-) Beautiful job Alana! #2029604

Richard Lynch 11/3/2005 6:19:15 AM

I'd be glad to see the original too! I've created an IR action that I use...did you have a specific method? Very ice conversion. #2030402

Alana Ibe 11/3/2005 8:36:08 AM

Thank you so much Nicole, Jill, and Richard! I'm glad you stopped by, thanks for the kind comments. Richard, I am uploading the original, and I will send you an email regarding the method I used (as it is a little lengthy). Have a great day everyone! #2030958
