So fun!!! did you catch any with the wind? If so, let us see the action - LOL! I love walking away shots and this is precious... the color of the umbrella is great with her light colors. Very nicely presented, Judi! #6630001

Hi Karen, Oh yes, I got loads with the wind. Also had 3 other girls with pink parasols all trying to hold them..I still laugh looking at them..I'm glad you like it..thanks...I'll look for a good "wind shot" !! :-)) #6631545

I don't know what effects or painting you applied Judi, but this is another work of art... superb! #6635475

Judi Bailey 10/22/2008 7:08:56 AM

Hi Stefania!!! Always good to hear from you !..thanks !! :-)) I just realized I didn't put any info under the picture....I usually "play it by ear" or "eye".....:-) This one has a bit of Lucis Art and a bit of smudging and some blending and a bit of lighting !!....that's about it for this one.....I really liked the original, but thought it needed to "pop" a little !! :-) #6637067
