Vicki - Very neat! You may need to spend more time in the darkroom! I find myself venturing in there way more often. :) - Mike #6517768

Vicki L. Filippin 9/26/2008 7:10:59 PM

Thanks, Mike! DD is SOOO not my forte'; it's that addicting Topaz filter! I ran through a few of the preloaded adjustment on it and when this popped up I was like...hmmm...this could be interesting. I'll leave the DD work for other like you, Datha, Elida, Jean on a regular basis, #6517838

This is a pair of sculptured swordfish high atop the main entrance to this grand resort.
I used the Topaz Adjust filter and other edits to acheive the look I wanted.
Not a category I usually enter, but thought I would give it a try.
