Mike Umbreit 2/7/2009 6:48:05 AM

Katarina - Thanks! This image has had many things done to it. It started as a single RAW image so I used Photomatix to create a pseudo-HDR image. From there I went to work with Topaz adjust and a few other filters to get the look I wanted. Hope that helps! - Mike #7137106
