Love, love, love the composition! She is a real little doll and it really works in BW. Congrats on being a finalist. Dreamy photo works now - I had some trouble with it but it turned out I had a worm, a trojan and hackers in my system - all sorted now, I hope!So much for my useless firewall and up to date antivirus software, didn't do a thing. Ad-aware fixed it, it deep scans your registry which all the others don't have access to. It detected 29 objects and now all seems ok. It is a free download if you'd like the program - look up Ad aware on Google - there are tons of links! Thanks so much for the link because I really like that Dreamy photo plug in. #474701
