Neat shot! And great work! Like a mandala (I think that's the word I'm looking for). I don't think I have those functions on my software (Kaleidescope and Vortex.) If they're here, they're sure well hidden! I have never seen them coming up. Did you download those features separately? Looks like they'd be fun to work with! Love the image. #2478620
