You deserve a medal on this one. Did you do this in PS? I have a 2 year old grandson and would love to learn this process. #6317533

Teresa Norris 8/15/2008 1:57:51 PM

Joy, Colleen, Robin...many thanks to you all!! I truly appreciate your kind words. It means so much!

Robin, I just used some filters that are in PS: dry brush and a little bit of poster edges. I also increased the saturation.


Daniella Puente 8/15/2008 2:18:15 PM

Hi Teresa! congrats on this beautiful and unique POTD :) is really great... #6318155

Teresa Norris 8/15/2008 2:31:21 PM

Hi Daniella! As you know, your comments always mean so much to me...thank you!!! #6318214

Teresa Norris 8/15/2008 3:56:49 PM

Robin, I wrote the wrong thing about what I used on this photo. I had worked on a couple of similar ones at the same time, but actually on this one I used a bleach bypass just lightly, dry brush filter, and a light cross-process. I also increased the contrast to bring out the reflection more and sharpened.

Duh. Sorry about that! #6318515
