anonymous A. level-classic 3/4/2006 5:21:35 AM

I liked the original, but I think this actually looks MORE natural. The "grain" doesn't bother me in the least, although it might not be so attractive in a print.
So, like all your other admirers, I think this works very well. #2494503

Congrats to all of the finalists and winners this month.

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

Oh - BTW, this is the result of my playing around with the first image I took with my new camera....let me know what you think. Does it work or are the effects too grainy?
