I mean to ask if you'd used a Blur Filter? ! #2365331

Dr Silly 2/1/2006 1:43:12 PM

Don't ask me why, but I like this. :o)

Ursula I. Abresch 2/1/2006 4:39:13 PM

Dr. Silly - Why?

@Robyn, the blur comes mostly from layering of three separate images, one of which was completely out of focus. I erased portions I wanted to keep clear. However, I did intensify the blur a tad close to the edges of the image. #2366043

GREAT idea and masterfully executed! #2477030
