This is so pretty, Roseann.
Excellent composition using the branches and leaves to frame the scene.
Nicely done.

Roseann E. Dreasher 12/7/2003 7:34:05 AM

Thank you Susan P., Susan E. Sharon, Lori, Karen and Su!

Su, I took this image around 9am, somewhat overcast day in the P mode. Then took the image into Photoshop, duplicated the layer several times, cleaned up houses and stuff in background, did a gaussian blur on one layer, multiplied on another layer and did a screen setting on another layer. Cropped off the bottom half which had the shadow of the tree and voila! #291464

Stanley J. Contrades 12/7/2003 1:02:17 PM

Very, very nice, RED, beautiful colors and thanks for the tech info.

Lori Ditlefsen 12/7/2003 2:23:58 PM

Wow, lots of work! I never thought of duplicating the layers before. I'll try that some time. Thanks for the info! #291729

Roseann E. Dreasher 12/7/2003 3:29:23 PM

Thanks Stan!! Aloha to you!!

Thanks Lori! I ALWAYS duplicate the layer before doing anything in Photoshop. Then I can play with different effects and not affect the original image. : ) #291772
