Aloha Cary,

So many of your images "caught my eye" but I have to comment on this one. It is utterly dreamy! I can "see" it very large on a gallery wall. #6741208

Thank you, Donna!! Sometimes I like to take an "ok" shot, or even a throw away (for some reason)....and try different artistic fx and layering techniques, to see if I can make it a whole lot more interesting. thanks again!! :-) #6804080
