Spectacular!!! #337411

Brenda W. LaFleur 1/17/2004 12:11:19 PM

Thanks everyone for you nice comments. I truly appreciate your taking the time to view and comment. A lot of PS work went into this one. I mirrored and flipped the image to get a better reflection in the water. Then used a PS filter to ripple the reflection. Many touchups to fill in the spots where the water wasn't clear. Buzzed with the simplifiesr and cropped to make more of a panoramic view.

Again, thanks for the encouragement! #337414

Thanks all for your comments. Can't tell you how much they're appreciated. As requested, I'll upload the original. Although there is a reflection in the original, I mirrored the image to eliminate the light sky reflection that I didn't find attractive.

Thanks again! #383335

Brenda W. LaFleur 2/17/2004 10:23:53 AM

Um, the photo didn't attach. I'll try again. #383340

Brenda W. LaFleur 2/17/2004 10:28:08 AM

Sorry, still can't get the original to upload. It's probably because it is really too ugly to appear on this site :) I did a lot of work on it!

Denise, email me and we'll work out you getting to see the original. #383346
