Thanks. Not much treatment was done, other than the usual contrast, gamma and saturation adjustments. #8837983

What a way to start at BP. One Finalist from just 4 entries, that's some achievement. CONGRATZ on snagging one and good luck in the next round!!

I think this is terrific... It does have a nearly-3D look, but the background goes a long way to helping that, I think. I love the muted tones in this. Congratulations and welcome to BP (I'm a bit late!) #9200276
