Great shot and effect, Deborah. Your bird silhouettes are terrific. #150068

Deborah Sandidge level-classic 7/21/2004 7:27:02 AM

Thank you Wally! I liked the silhouette, but the color and water behind them was not very exciting. PS allowed for a little more drama! I've been trying many, many times to photograph the cormorants, they're in an awkward spot to get a good silhouette. I liked this group the best(there were about 20 of them!) #662607

Joy Brown level-classic 7/21/2004 7:38:59 AM

Great shot and digital sky, Deborah! #662626
